I used the lovely hexagon die to make this card; I cut out a template, attached it to some card then, using Nicole Heady's hexagon colour plan, I stamped four colours over the template. I cut this layer to fit the base of my card. Using the Rosie Posie dies, I cut several flower and then stamped the images in So Saffron. I used my Promarkers to add some depth to the flowers and leaves. I cut the pretty scallop border from some card and attached to some white card and then attached the lace over the top. I cut a couple of mats onto which I attached the flowers. I stamped this super sentiment onto vellum as I didn't want to cover up the background pattern. And I finished off the card with some bling! And, I decorated the inside of the card too - using more hexagons!
I used this week's sketch from My Favourite Things - MFTWSC91 for the layout, and as there are scallops in several places this card is also being submitted to this week's Do You Stack Up? - DYSU81 challenge to use scallops.

I had a brilliant day yesterday. We finally finished unpacking our moving boxes!! Yes, I know we've been here a while, but sometime you just keep putting things off! Well, I do. Everything has been put away and now all that's left is getting rid of the empty boxes.
Kathryn and I plan to have a girly day - we're off to the cinema. Not sure what we'll see yet, but it'll be a fun day. Jonathan is off to a photo shoot. Enjoy your day - see you soon.
