Valentine Mojo CASE

When I saw the sketch challenge Mojo176, I had a hard time envisioning anything to create with the wavy line. Once I saw this card by Riley I knew I had to CASE it, but wanted to use more traditional Valentine's Day colours.
I initially made this version using retired basic gray dp and blushing bride but felt that the gray seemed to dark and made the pink look even more pale. When Grant told me he thought the same thing, I tried again and made this second version.
This uses gray paper from the retired walk in the park dp and rose red. Grant and I both liked the contrast between the papers and colours much better.

Notice my bows! Check out this tutorial by Mary Brown on how to make these beautiful and easy bows. These cards make me wish I had ordered basic gray brads - guess they'll have to go on my next order!

Both Cards:
Stamps: SU teeny tiny wishes, I {heart} hearts
Paper: SU whisper white,
Punch: Heart to heart extra large
Ribbon: SU white organdy (retired)
Brad: SU silver
Misc: SU dimensionals

Blushing Bride Card
Ink: SU blushing bride
Paper: SU blushing bride, basic gray dp (retired)

Rose Red Card
Ink: SU rose red
Paper: SU rose red, walk in the park dp (retired)
