Sketch Me A Valentine (and some masculine cards too!)

I took advantage of this week's circle based sketch from Allison to get some Valentines made. Here's the sketch for this week's sketch challenge at
I ended up flipping the sketch and made one of my cards a square.
This punch art bulls-eye was inspired by this great CAS card by manitobastamper that I saw on Pinterest.

I'm more fond of this square card in non-traditional Valentine colors

This was a really fun sketch and easy to work with....I have several more ideas brewing so we'll see if I have time to execute them. Hope you'll join along in the fun!
    Had to come back and add a couple more that I squeezed into my day. Needed a masculine card for my cousin who had major surgery on his esophagus so I worked the sketch in that direction.
This one has the strips wheeled with the Timber wheel and lines added with a marker and ruler.
