rainbow and hexies and a challenge, oh my


When I saw this quilt, I knew that I wanted to try to make a card based on it one day. All I needed was to get a hold of a punch since there was absolutely no way I was fussy cutting all of those hexagons. Enter the Papertrey hexagon cover plate and I was ready to go.


This is my final entry into the challenge at Moxie Fab World called Hooked on Hexagons. If you hurry, you can still take part in the challenge.
