A few new cards and projects in the making

Good morning everyone!
Had a really fun evening with the Stampers ten yesterday! Lovely girls and we made a sweet card and tag that was quite different from my usual style so I will hang on to that for a while to hopefully make me venture out of my comfort zone a bit.
I have been a busy bee yesterday and on the weekend as well so have a few cards and an unfinished project to share with you. Any suggestions for improving the later are gratefully received!

But here goes:




This card was a comissioned first birthday card for a little girl. The lady I did this for doesn't like images on the cards very much which is always a bit of a challenge for me. I used Basic Grey Cupcake papers, Distress ink in Fired Brick and PTI sets "Bitty Baby Blessings" and "Simple Alphabet" and finished with Stickles and red Half Pearls.



For this card (also comissioned) I used PTIs "Life" set and Pebbles Inc Ribbon, Ballet Blue and Fresh Snow ink on SU cardstock. Quite simple but I like it...



This card is for the spotty Tilda Challenge over on DoCrafts. I made the spotty papers with PTI set "Polka Dot Basics" and punched and shaped flowers from the same paper. You can't really tell from the picture, but the base card is chocolate brown. We had to use three colours on the card and I chose chocolate brown, pink and green. Not so sure if I overdid the spottiness of the card a bit *lol*
I used Nestabilities curved rectangles, a Tilda (obviously...)that I coloured with copics, my own paper creations were made with SU in Regal Rose, Versafine in Vintage Sepia and Antique Linen Distress Ink. Flower Punches are Woodware and Circle Punch for the centers is SU circle in 3/4". The sentiment is a "Innie & Outie" from My Sentiments exactly.
Hope you like my creations and for a better view try to click on them!
Last but not least a desktop organizer I created using a "Timeless Template" by Lauren Meader for PTI. I assembled it and added Basic Grey "Scarlett Letter" papers but am not sure yet on what embellishments to use. But I think it looks great already! Have for the moment put divider cards in and might use it to organise my addresses, but also noticed it is a perfect fit for 6 x 6 lose papers. Might need to do more of these...





Thanks for visiting and have a beautiful day!
