Stitchy stitch - Lorna Bateman embroidery

Hi! I bought a kit to make an embroidery pincushion recently. I'd seen them online from a great shop on Folksy for Lorna Bateman Embroidery.  Her embroidery designs are gorgeous and the kits are brilliant.  
It only took a week of a few evening stitching hours to get the pincushion done, and that was pretty much from a standing embroidery start (it's got to be 25 years since I last embroidered as a child!)
I was thrilled with the result and have made lots of other pretty pieces since, including a card with the embroidery.  Here are my attempts.

 Such lovely colours.  The card was an experiment and i'm just making another having learnt from the first one....

 Thanks for looking.
