Exploding Box - Baby Girl with co-ordinating card

After my first box attempt a lady at work ordered this.  It took me a weekend to make (with various interruptions).  The cardstock was from Create and Craft.  The printed images were from a Create and Craft Occasions CD and other elements were from my craft box.

The punched layer was courtesy of a cheap punch purchased recently from Readicut and I wanted to incorporate it into my design.

The sheep was purchased from Clinton's cards at a bargain price of £1.49 and I bought various variations of this in one go.  It's nose was blue, but I coloured it pink with a Glaze 3D Roller pen and left it to dry.  The co-ordinating cards was made with left over materials and matching elements. 

The lid element and element on the card reads "Little Angel".

The recipient was thoroughly delighted. 

Please let me know what you think and post comments on how I could have made this better.

My first ATC card submitted for evaluation.  I wonder who will get it when the swap takes place! 

Please give feedback on what you think.

Project 3 for my Certificate in Papercraft coursework

This was made with card from paperbox.  It was embossed with a cuttlebug envelope.  The flowers, ribbon, beads and flower brads were from my own craft box and I've had them for years.

Again please submit any comments and ideas for improvement.  Thank you.

Project 1 for my Certificate in Papercraft coursework

This is my first experience of making an exploding box. I was pretty chuffed with my first attempt and already have an order from a lady at work to make one for a girl.  That boosted my confidence somewhat.  Please let me know of any other ideas on how I could improve on my first attempt. 

The cardstock was from create and craft, the ribbon and peel offs were from my own craft box.  The images were printed on decoupage paper from Joanna Sheens Messy Rabbit CD and also a create and craft Occasions CD.  The lettering was stamped using Black Onyx Versamark ink pad and coloured using Promarkers.

Thank you fellow crafters and followers
