Honeycomb card for Heart2Heart Color Challenge

This week Heart2Heart Challenges is hosting a color combination challenge of Cashmere, Sunset, Barn Red and Gypsy.  At first I wasn't sure how these colors would combine but once I played with them I fell in LOVE with the combination!  It had such a fun vintage vibe going on I thought it would be perfect for a card with a quilt feel to it - something warm and snuggly like a hug that I can send to a friend who had a rough week.

I have a confession to make.  When the Honeycomb stamp set came out last year I didn't get it even though I really liked it.  Why?  Because I didn't want to have to hand cut all those beautiful hexagons.  I know, I know, I'm totally spoiled by my Cricut now aren't I?  BUT when Artbooking was previewed for consultants, a friend shared with me that you can cut the honeycomb overlay at 11" and it will create spaces that perfectly fit this set.  Even better?  All the negatives that are left on the mat are sized to stamp on with the set and pop dot them up.  Can you say FABULOUS!  So, I had to order this set this month so I could play!

The heart and banner shape are from the new Laughing Lola Card Workshop kit.  I knew that set would become a favorite for me to make cards!

I hope you'll join us at Heart2Heart Challenges this week and combine Cashmere, Sunset, Barn Red and Gyspy into a project that speaks to you!
