Pin-spired gradient hearts

Hello hello! Hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday so far:)
Today I'm posting for two different challenges, the first of which is a new  feature on the Denami blog this year called Pin-spired.

Paulina finds fabulous photos on Pinterest for us to be inspired by while we craft!
This one has lovely macaroons in pretty pink hues with white cream sandwiched in between. YUM!
I took the gradient colors with white and created this super quick long card...
Speaking of "quick," this card only took me 6:49 to create! 
(so I'm joining in the newest Craft Dash Challenge of hearts too)

I took six strips of scrap cardstock in three coordinating colors and stacked them on top of each other. Then I cut about an inch off from the hot pink strips and nearly two inches from the pale pink ones. Placing the ends together, I shoved a brad through, fanned them out and brought them together again and put another brad through them. 
Then I just added my embellishment over a stamped mini heart next to a large embossed sentiment! Simple and quick:)

Denami supplies used:
Love sentiment

Join in both of these challenges by creating a project that takes no more than 10 minutes, uses hearts, and is inspired by the photo!
I know there is a fabulous prize to be won ...*grin*

Thanks for stopping by.
Be sure to check out how several Denami Designers were "Pin-spired" by this photo on the Denami blog
and also, go see what the Craft Dash Designers created too!
