as soon as i have a lot of straight lines on a card, i'm usually on the lookout for a way to add some circles... or at least some non-linear shapes. in this case i went with a few truncated curvy labels, a scalloppy border punch, a custom-dyed canvas bird sticker, and flowers made of paper, ribbon, and cardstock.
hexagons are (deservedly!) SUPER-popular right now, so i hope you'll be itching to get to work on your "hexed" creation, but do stop by CCCB and check out the design-team's inspiring take on this fun challenge! ♥
ps: many thanks to the always au courrant miss stephanie for pointing out that this card--as well as any hexy ones that y'all might make this week-- serendipitously fits to perfection the current "hooked on hexagons" challenge at moxie fab world; where, as usual, they have put together a swooningly gorgeous post just totally FULL of ideas from the worlds of papercrafting, fine arts, quilting, decor, etc! can i get a, "woohoo!"?!
*in my experience, rigid chipboard pieces are just WAITING for the opportunity to leap, lemming-like, off of my papercrafting projects. so, being vigilant, i TAKE STEPS. :)
