Two Thank You Cards - Green and Blue

I made this patterned paper for a card three years ago, and since then, the leftovers have been sitting in my stash.  It was fun designing a card to use them up.  I like how the die cut edges look with the pattern dots.  Both cards are nice, but the one on the left is my favorite with its unusual color scheme.  

Card details:
  • Card stock is:
    Left - Paper Source royal blue and Papertrey Ink (PTI) ripe avocado (green), ocean tides (muted teal), and stamper's select white
    Right - PTI new leaf (green), enchanted evening (dark blue), fine linen (tan), and vintage cream
  • Dies are PTI sketched shapes (the long wide banner) and stitching lines
  • Twine is from The Twinery:
    Left - Denim stripe
    Right - Seaweed stripe
  • Patterned paper is computer-printed on PTI ocean tides and fine linen card stock with blue and green ink.  I used Monotype Sorts and Wingding fonts for my shapes. 
  • Sentiment "thank you" is from PTI keep it simple: thank you, stamped with PTI ink cube:
    Left - Ripe avocado
    Right - Enchanted evening
