A Hexagon Hello

Hello friends,

Happy Friday!  It seems like it's been a while since I had a chance to play along with a challenge over at Moxie Fab World, but this month is a good one, so I just had to make time.  The challenge this month is all about the hexagons and to play along, we need to create a project featuring this fun shape.

Here is what I came up with:

I got out my dies and a few scraps of cardstock and die cut some hexagons in various shapes and sizes. I cut a couple of the hexagons into diamonds and adhered them to a panel of cream cardstock.  I used foam tape on a couple of the shapes to add a bit more interest and dimension.   I stamped 'Hello' onto the yellow "hexalong" and added a spattering of gold sequins as an accent.   

The card felt a little a little top heavy, so I added a strip of gold glitter ribbon to anchor it a bit. My final step was to adhere the cream cardstock panel to a kraft card base.

This card was inspired by the sweet geometric vignette I found at Oh Happy Day!

I found the shapes and colors of the hexagon trays (item 3) super inspiring and tried to capture that with my card.

If you haven't already, I hope you can find some time this weekend to play along with the Happy for Hexagon challenge at Moxie Fab World.  You have until Friday, March 7 to link up your take and join in all the fun! :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
