The Card Concept #1

Hello Friends,

There is a new challenge blog called The Card Concept.  This is an exciting challenge, since you have 6 style themes to choose from!  I couldn't resist not making a Valentine's card using this color combo:



My card:


I decided to go with a Clean and Simple (CAS) card.  The card base is Very Vanilla, with another layer of the same card stock.  The branch was die-cut from Espresso card stock using the Memory Box Woodland Branch and the swing was die-cut from Kraft card stock using the Memory Box Set of Swings.  The tree was hand drawn.  Two pink hearts were adhered to the swing using some dimensionals.  The sentiment is from Inspired By Stamping Be Mine, and was stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
