Fussy and Fancy DT: Valentine's without Red or Pink

I'm back with this week's project for the Fussy and Fancy DT.  This week we are looking for Valentine's without Red or Pink.  This proved to be a little tougher than I thought, but was happy with the way my project turned out.  I used a new Lili of the Valley image from a friend (I love these new release stamps - so cute!) and went with the color scheme of blue and brown, another one of my favorites.  Sorry again for the poor picture quality....I'm in desperate need of a new camera, but the funds are thinking something different.  Oh well, that's what wish lists are for!  The blue background paper is from DCWV Be Mine stack.  The brown DP is Bo Bunny and I love the way they compliment each other.  I followed the sketch from Papertake Weekly and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  Thef lowers are primas.  I took the plunge and placed an order with Wild Orchid Crafts - I absolutely cannot wait for these to come in!

Here's another angle:
