New year's cards.

Happy new year to you! If for nothing else, its great to be alive today. I want to share with you some cards I made over the last week.My husband owns a business and he requested me to make some cards for 3 of his best clients. I said yes of course!
 Here are all the cards together.
I must say I am really proud of the card below. This was my first time to try husking and am happy with how it turned out for the orange flower. The yellow flower was made with a new oval scallop punch I bought myself for christmas :-)

Up close:

The stems are glued down to the paper with very strong glue so they won't bend. (tutorial anyone interested?) I will share the rest of the cards and how I made them over the next few days.
It's been a while since I participated in any challenges so I would like to submit my card to the following blogs:
