Just Because - Hexagon Hive Thinlet die & Petite Petals - a Case

We had a mild day today, but the weather tomorrow is supposed to make up for any enjoyment we experienced today.  More snow is forecast.  On top of all the snow we have received to date we've run out of room to put it when we shovel.  It's getting hazardous to emerge from your driveway!

Today's card is a CASE of a card I saw on Pinterest.  It's so spring-like  looking I couldn't resist making it.

The base card is Island Indigo layered with Watercolor Wonder DSP followed by a Whisper White layer die cut using the Hexagon Hive Thinlet die.  Hint: Use waxed paper underneath the thinlet die to make removing the hexagons easier.  To attach the hexagon die cut paper, I used tombo glue thinly applied to the edges.

On a scrap piece of paper, I stamped 5 Petite flowers - 2 in Island Indigo, I Daffodil Delight, 1 Pear Pizzazz, and 1 Calypso Coral.  They were punched out using the coordinating Petite Petals punch, and the petals curled up.  After attaching to the card using glue dots, a pearl was placed in the center of each flower.
The sentiment is from "A Dozen Thoughts".  The edges of the sentiment banner were sponged with Island Indigo ink to make it stand out from the white background.

Inks: Island Indigo, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Calypso Coral, Basic Black
