One layer, 10 minutes...what could be better?!

I just love making 10-minute cards, but they are difficult to achieve!  The challenge at CASology is Contrast, so I knew I wanted to do a mostly black and white card with some pink sponging. The sketch at Nacho Average Challenges worked perfectly for the idea I had in my head!  
The two squiggles inspired me to use two shades of pink, Blushing Bride and Primrose Petals. I masked off the top and bottom of my sentiment and sponged the two colors, one starting on the top and the other on the bottom, blending them together in the middle.
I finished it off by adding some little Primrose Petals hearts. This is one I might have my kids duplicate for their Valentine's for their teachers. It's so simple but they will have a ball sponging the colors on!
