GS73 - Embellish Color Trends Challenge with Hearts

Lots of patterned papers make up this "miss you friend" card - Three Gypsies, Basic Grey and Memory Box.  I figured 5 different patterned papers was enough for this card - but who knows, maybe one day I'll make a card with 6!!  That's how wild and crazy I can get -
This card is based on the two challenges above - Get Sketchy #73 and the new Embellish Magazine Color Challenge with Hearts.  Cut my hearts with my Nestabilities dies and finished off with one of my favorite touches - a Zva Pearl Swirl.
Our older son has been home sick the past two days so things have been a bit off-kilter.  It is supposed to snow tonight - have to admit - I am getting sick of winter!  Usually I am a big fan of winter but it seems to be dragging on this year -

Hello, Moxie friend! It's nice to bump into you again. I love the dimension you gave to the hearts and the color really makes them pop.
