Non-traditional vs Traditional Valentine Colors

This week Club CK's Issue Challenge was to create a "love" layout without using the traditional theme colors or embellishments. This was a true challenge for me! I usually use reds or pinks to evoke the feelings of love on my layouts. To narrow my selection, I was inspired by Color Me Scrappy's orange and greens challenge. 

Here's my color inspiration:

Here's my resulting layout:

CS: SC, pp: OA. tape: Hapton Arts, Queen & Co. stickers: LYB, BG, Adorn It, AC, momenta. transparency: BG.
flower: SFTIO. dots: MME. vaneers: SC. ink: ColorSnaps.

 Then, I made this layout with the traditional red and a large heart. I twisted it up a little with pairing it with a bright turquoise blue.

 The paper trim reminded me of the cape used at the salon! I really loved using the ink dauber with the mask. What a great way to look a little grungy!
