A Style of Your Own

This is my second post for today, be sure to scroll down for my Valentine Box.

Time for another Friends with Flair and of course a new Get Sketchy challenge!

I worked with some of my Echo Park Be Mine scraps for this card and instead of highlighting the pink in the kit, I decided to go with purple.  I subtly colored one of the shoes with a light purple copic.  The stamps are from the Unity January KOTM. This card and the next one are also for the Tuesday Throwdown challenge - stitching.

Now be sure to stop on over at Get Sketchy and play along!


For my next card I was inspired by the Jay Gee's Nook challenge:


For this card I used the January KOTM along with the Store Kit - Life Becoming & Quiet Essence.  The papers are October Afternoon Thrift Shop.


Also be sure to begin at the Unity blog to see what everyone has created for you this week.
