Less is more/Passion for Papertrey Wonderful Wildlife Challenge Part 2

I wanted to add another card to the Passion for Papertrey challenge that I made recently using my wonderful Papertrey Leaf print dies, and it also qualifies for the Less is More sketch challenge.

Its quite similar to my last card, in that it uses the negative die cut to showcase the die (there's no way I could have cut through the very textured bamboo with a die, so using the negative means I could still use it). The first card is using a burgundy background paper and then a lovely rusty bamboo paper, tea dye distress inks to sponge around the edges and a simple banner sentiment.

Next I did another card using the same idea, but using green tones.
Forest moss distress ink this time and I moved my banner over to the side to give it a slightly different look.

The sentiment is a very old wooden stamp I've had for years which has a little bunch of flowers at one end which I always mask off, but unbelievably its the only 'thinking of you' sentiment I have, but I love that phrase, its so versatile.
Hope you like this natural/wildlife card!
