Commissioned cards

This post is very picture heavy, i got a commision this weekend to make all of these cards, then while making them i decided that perhaps i could make one of them following the challenge on the Sugar bowl, which was nice and easy as its a sketch.  They also asked for hand made flowers so i whipped these flowers on the above card together in a flash and thought they came out pretty good for hand made by yours truly, i added some dusty concord so that they would match my card too, and also added a flourish from a MD.  The border across my card is an EK punch.

All the images are colored using my preffered medium of copics and embellished with items from  my stash.

I know they are very different to what you normally see me do, but the recipient asked for very clean and simple, and i geuss this is as clean and simple as i can do.
Hope you like them
