CCMC240 Color Challenge

Hi everyone.  Today at Create with Connie & Mary we have a color challenge - Basic Gray, Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight.

When I first saw the colors, I thought of doing a floral card.  Funny how it ended up like this...

Not a flower in sight LOL.  I'd seen the "thanks" done this way on a card on Pinterest (which I didn't pin, unfortunately), so it's not my idea.  The letters are popped up on little slivers of dimensionals.

The honeycomb layer has DSP hexagons randomly placed in both Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight.  A button and bakers twine bow finishes it off.

Thanks for looking.  Head on over to Create with Connie & Mary and check out the fantastic cards created by the challenge team.

Products used (all Stampin' Up!):

Cardstock:  Basic Gray; Melon Mambo; Daffodil Delight; Brights DSP
Accessories:  Honeycomb EF; Brights Button; White Bakers Twine; Typeset Alphabet Bigz Die

Don't you just love it when you have an idea in your head and you complete something in a totally different direction? The hexagons really give dimension on the basic gray and love how you lined up the "thanks"!
