Card Concept {monochromatic pink Together}

I have been following the new challenge blog, The Card Concept. It's a new blog, new challenges and a fresh take. I like it, and I am playing along this week. It's only the third challenge and it seemed like an easy one to create for. 
The challenge is to use monochromatic pink on your card. It's the season of LOVE (Valentine's Day is Friday.....are you ready??) so I already had a bunch of pink on my desk. 

Here's what I came up with. I couldn't help myself. Love my Reverse Confetti. Today I created a custom sentiment with Go Together.

 I used the Tag Me die for a large tag and then cut out a small heart with the Love Note dies.  Since I used some designer paper, I wanted my sentiment to stand out.  I made a lighter pink panel with Insulation pink cs, added a Pink Lemonade small scallop edge (Double Edge Scallop Border) and stamped the words in the matching Pink Lemonade ink. 

 Here's a closer look. I needed just a little something for my background, so I stamped more hearts with one of the fun borders from Whole Lotta Hearts

The challenge asks you to classify your card into one of the styles they showcase on the blog. I always have a hard time with this. But I'm going with Clean and Layered. I started out thinking Clean & Simple, but when I look back at it, I think there are a bit more layers than a CAS card would call for. What do you think?

This is the inspiration photo from the challenge blog. Please visit the Card Concept and link up your own card HERE.
