Searching for my style....

Can you learn style or is it just a talent you have? I seem to spend hours looking at examples of other people's work and mine just doesn't seem to have that 'wow' factor that others do. Is this something everyone suffers from? Is it just it's harder to appreciate the beauty in your own work?

It seems I favour a clean and simple style, I don't like some if the really 'busy' cards that you find on some sites, but I haven't yet figured out how to make mine really special...any advice? 

In the mean time as I didn't share this when it was Mother's Day in the UK I'll share it now, little boy reminded me a bit of Tom! 
There is a bit of story to the making of this card, I made it while visiting my parents during Feb half term. I only took my laptop, some paper, scissors, craft knife and the 2012 limited edition Promarkers and thought I'd see what I could make.

Realised once I got to Leicester I had forgotten the crucial card stock and glue!!! Quick trip to the Range solved that problem, and away I went.
