Happy Sunday!  I am popping in with two cards to share for this month's Papertrey Ink September Blog Hop!  



I used the same stamps (except for sentiments), dies, and inks for both cards.  I only changed a few things.  I started with the Make It Market: DFTW Kit scalloped note card die.  I liked using it on the card front because the score line provided the perfect place to add my string.  I used  Holiday Greens stamp and die,  Christmas Faith, Keep It Simple, and Tropics stamp sets. I used olive twist, ripe avocado, cocoa bean, and saffron spice inks.




Both cards are very similar.  I created two masculine cards using these sets.  I changed the base color from smokey shadow to vintage cream.  





The leafy floral arrangements are slightly different. I also used twine on one and a fine natural cording on the other.  




I finished both cards with some tiny dots stamped in saffron spice using the Christmas Faith stamp set instead of sequins to keep with the masculine feel designs.  Also playing along with this week's PTI MIM Challenge to use florals for masculine cards. 





As always thanks so much for hopping by!
