What no red?

It is that time of the year again...so I thought we could all get busy on a Valentine card...it doesn't have to be for Valentine - just a romantic card...BUT no red (or pink.....that is too close to red!) ....so how easy is that!
I seem to have been making Valentine cards forever so need all the help I can get at the moment! That before I even think about one for DH ;) so I thought I would give the new challenge on CBC a go.

I found this piece of backing paper when I was looking for something else and decided to use it as a colour combination for my card. I'm not sure what make the papers are but I think they may have come from an old SA kit. I covered the chipboard heart with brown card and pale blue paper and tied them together with pale blue shimmer ribbon. The letters are Wassail by Basic Grey.
