Secret Garden Hive...


I wanted to play with the Hexagon Hive thinlit die and found a pretty sketch at Cardabilities as well as a colour combo at Hand Stamped Sentiments to inspire me...

I wanted to stamp something on the Hexagon Give die-cut so I looked through my stamps for some possibilities and decided on some of the motifs from Hello Lovely...

I was really pleased with how this one turned out (even though I forgot to put the large banner from the sketch into my design!). I was actually pretty quick to put together because of the flowers and leaves having coordinating dies (love these!)... I added some pearls and a greeting and that was that!

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Secret Garden, Hello Lovely, Petite Pairs
Ink: Coastal Cabana, Gumball Green, Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight
Paper: Coastal Cabana, Whisper White
Accessories: Pearls
Tools: Secret Garden framelits, Hexagon Hive thinlit die

Thanks for stopping by...
