Hi there,
Pretty mellow day today.  All is quiet here and I'm lovin' it!

I have a couple of cards to share that were submitted at Stuck on U Sketches for their first card sketch of 2013.  An additional challenge is to use only scraps.  So, I went digging through all my scraps and came up with some papers that actually matched!  :)

This is the sketch:

I ended up making two cards, playing around with the hexagons.  They're similar except for the matting of hexagons on one card and the sentiments and flowers are different.
 As I mentioned above, these were made using scraps.  I usually save my scraps (a large bag of them) for this sort of thing.  I never know when I need to dig through the bag to find just the right paper color.

I used my Nestabilities dies and the hexagons were printed on line.  I added ribbon through the center and two flowers with gems. 

The hexagons for this card were matted onto white cardstock and the edges were distressed.  Because they were matted, I used less hexagons on this card.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a wonderful day!
Libby  :)
