Hexagonally Challenged

I'm posting a card today for the Hexagons: Happy for Hexagons Challenge in the Moxie Fab World!

A crafting trend for awhile now, hexagons are out there in full force...but NOT in my stash so it would seem. I had to DIG through all my embellishments and papers before I found this lovely patterned paper piece in the Wanderlust collection by Studio Calico.

For this card, I used my craft knife and a ruler to cut out one of the hexagons, then backed it on a soft grey card base. I stamped the sentiment, covered it with Wink of Stella glitter and gave it a coating of glossy accents. It's so shiny and glossy and has nice dimension in real life. Looooove! After adding more than a few embellishments, the end result was something a little more fussy than I normally make. Sometimes it's fun to play around outside your crafting comfort zone!
