Jess, nearly all of us were in the same position at some time, I am sure. I have been around a long time and I know that my cards still are not nearly as wonderful as others, but I still add to my gallery.
There have been some great suggestions. I will add my 2 cents.
I find that I just go to a few of the forums most often - rather than read everything, I use the search box to find specific answers.
I looked at your gallery. I found a lot to like! It looks like you might feel comfortable in the clean and Simple challenge (CAS), so that is another one to check out.
It might also be helpful for you to include key words in your description. If you would say "masculine", CAS, etc., then your card would show up in another member's search.
