Two Diagonal Stars with Gingham - Brown and Green

A pair of cards with the same elements...  Tan and green ginghams, a diagonal strip of stars, cream twine striped with gold, a brown card base, and a diagonal sentiment strip.  With the cream, I get a "neutrals" feeling from the tan and brown colors, so I'll call these cards monochromatic.

Card details:
  • Card stock is  Papertrey Ink (PTI) fine linen (tan - left card), spring moss (light green - right card), dark chocolate (brown), gingham print from PTI fine linen and simply chartreuse (medium green) pattern packs, and book print from PTI dearest Jane paper.
  • Twine is gold shimmer by The Twinery.  I used a hole punch to make a shallow notch for the twine on each side, to keep it from slipping.
  • Die is PTI super star border.  I used a Copic brown 0.3 multiliner to doodle a line on the left card's stars, along with some Copic E43 marker edging.
  • The sentiment "Thinking of you" is computer printed in green ink with brown text line using Wide Latin font, expanded character spacing.  The sentiment strips are edged with Copic E29 marker.
