Butterfly Reflections Ink September Mood Board & Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge #1 & MFT Card Design Superstar Contest -- do-over

Wow, how's that for a long title!

As you might have guessed, I have a couple of cards to share today....

The first one is for the Butterfly Reflections Ink September Mood Board

I decided to use my Concord & 9th Flourish stamp set to make my card.

I made a very simple, one layer card, using some Altenew inks (Desert Nights,
Arctic, Caribbean Sky, Persian Blue, Warm Sunshine) and PTI inks (Orange Zest, Terracotta Tile.)

I stamped my sentiment using PTI's Spring Woods.

My second one is "do-over" for one of the cards I made 

I had created three cards for the challenge, which I shared on Sunday,
but the last one had a sentiment from a Papertrey Ink stamp set
and was therefore disqualified.
I'm so thankful they let me know, so I could still submit a third card for the challenge.
So, if this card looks familiar, it was a copy of the one I shared on Sunday
-- I just changed the sentiment!

Using leaf stamps from MFT's Flashy Florals and Modern Blooms, I stamped the leaves 
on two white cardstock panels -- one in Altenew Morning Frost
and Evening Grey & the other in MFT Orange Zest & Ripe Raspberry, PTI's Spring Moss
& Simply Chartreuse, Altenew's Midnight Violet -- using my MISTI.
I diecut the coloured panel using this gorgeous MFT die that's now retired.

I diecut the "hello" die that came with my Flashy Florals kit
from black cardstock and adhered it to my diecut shape.
Then, I adhered the shape to my card using dimensional adhesive.
I matted my card on Ripe Raspberry cardstock.

Thanks for looking!
