Moxie Fab--Gray is the new Black!

I happened upon this challenge over at Moxie Fab a few days ago and have been toying with it ever since! After a few attempts that ended up in the garbage.....I finally think I have perfected it!!! There are 2 different color schemes, but both are accented with GRAY! I made a bunch of these as I am sending them with my husband when his ship deploys for 6 months on Thursday. The inside says 'happy valentines day!' Im hoping he will pass them out to some of the other guys to mail home to their wives/girlfriends (or husbands/boyfriends--there are ladies on the ship too!) At the very least, I SHOULD get a valentine right??? So here are 2 versions of the same card, featuring 'gray is the new black'

Smile orange

Smile purple

I should also note the other challenge this card is for. I got the sketch from Unscripted Sketches (sketch #88) Here is the sketch:

Also, the orange card fits with Basic Grey challenges, #35, dots and spots! it uses a sheet of Basic Grey Sugar Rush paper ;)
That is it for these cards! I've got a few more I have to get posted at some point today, I am in a mood to keep creating though, hate to stop and post!!!
