More Hexagons!

Hiya! I hope you're having a good week! I have, minus the hayfever! I've been making loads of cards recently - just not had time to blog many of them yet, hopefully soon. And I promise they're not all with hexagons! ;-) This card is for the funnest challenge I've seen! This weeks Papertrey Make it Monday challenge is called Roll the Die, all the details are here but basically you print out and fill in the sheet, then roll the dice to see what options come up and that's how you make your card! Here's my sheet, it's not very clear so I've written below what my choices were;

Orientation -
5 - Vertical
Layout -
3 - Sketch #3
Stamp Sets Image -
4 - Happy Hexagons
Stamp sets sentiment/supporting dies -
1 - Hexagon plate (phew!)
Colour scheme -
2 - Black, white & pink
Embellishments -
6 - Pearls

I'm so glad the Hexagon plate and stamps came up, I'm not sure I'd be good at spacing them without that! Although I've just read back and it doesn't say dies on the sheet! I thought Erin said it in her video but now I'm not so sure! Whoops!!
I thought the colours, layout and hexagons led to quite a funky, girlie card so I chose a bright pink and some stars, then added a bit of doodling. I use a mini square punch to make the banner end on the sentiment. I hope you like it!

Lovely simple design. it looks great even though there are lots of different shapes with the hexagons, circles and stars. Somehow it all blends in perfectly.
