Colour Q Challenge #211

I am constantly on the lookout for new challenges to participate in and I came across this blog a couple weeks ago. They have some super fun color combinations and a great group of designers showcasing each one every week.  I was finally able to put together a card to play along for this week.  You can find this week's challenge HERE.

This is the inspiration photo:

I wanted a clean and simple look for this color scheme so I pulled out some of my newer PTI goodies to play with for the challenge, including the hexagon cover plate die.  I love this die and the matching Happy Hexagons $5 stamp set- they made putting this card together so simple!

I started by die cutting the cover plate out of white cardstock.  Then I punched out all of the hexagon shapes and stamped them in Papertrey Ink's Orange Zest, Limeaid Ice, and Winter Wisteria using the chevron patterned hexie from the stamp set.   Next, I adhered the white border to a white card base, and then added my stamped pieces back in.  I love the look of this and it was so simple!  To finish off the card, I used a Mat Stack #6 die cut to house my sentiment. I stamped the "birthday" sentiment from the Happy Hexagons set and then added a Happy die cut from the Wonderful Words dies and a couple little green rhinestones.

That's it from me today, but make sure to stop by again tomorrow to check out the Tags I created for this month's Papertrey Blog Hop!

Have a fabulous day!!
