Trio of pigs

I was recently commissioned to make a set of cards using this pig stamp/sentiment from SU's Very Punny set. It is my first commission, and it was a tricky one! I made two each of three designs and packaged them in a Papertrey Ink clear card box. Those boxes are awesome! The client had received a card I made similar to the flower one below, but I couldn't remember exactly what it looked like, so I kind of redesigned it.
I used a Heidi Swapp daisy, my scallop punch and circle cutter, and the Cuttlebug for embossing. I stuck to shades of pink, black and white for the color combo on all three cards, to give them a somewhat unifying look.
I didn't take a new picture of the third card in the set, because I made that one awhile back and showed it here already! It was the simplest of the three, anyway. Overall, I thought the set turned out pretty cute, and the recipient loved them, which is a great thing. Maybe I'll get a few more commissions out of the deal!
Supplies:
Stamps: Very Punny - SU
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, Copic markers
Paper: pink pirhouette, pretty in pink, pink passion, basic black, neenah classic crest white
Accessories: scallop punches, circle cutter, Cuttlebug, ribbon, ticket punch
