Squared valentine

I know I'm geting a late start on valentines, but it's been very nice to be back in the studio a little bit!
I love the pink and red valentines!
I made the background paper using barn door and victorian velvet distress inks,
and then stamped with tea die distress ink using my Unity Stamp chicken coop stamp
(I just adore that stamp!!)
Soooo I am usually confused by sketches, but when I saw the sketch challenge over at
Our Creative Corner I thought "I can do that!"
So I did...
And as the multiple squares lent itself to lots of embelishments I decided to try to
incorporate the challenge at Desert Islands Crafts where I used numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6,8, and 9!!
Wow!! but ti was fun!
Also linking up to the Anything Goes challenges at Tuesday Alchemy, Bearly Mine Challenges 
and Flutterby Wednesdays (must use a butterfly or fairy)
Finally I'm linking up to the Monochrome Challenge at Anything Goes Challenges
