A little bit different ...

I don't usually use coloured card for my base but today it seemed to be an appropriate choice ...

I stamped some cream card with background stamps using distress inks before die cutting some different sized hexagons which I then adhered to the card base.  The sentiment was die cut a number of times to provide added dimension.  I'd planned the card to be portrait but when it came to adding the sentiment it seemed to work better as a landscape card.

I used:
STAMPlorations - Mixed Media Elements
CUTplorations - Awesome die
Distress Inks - Vintage Photo and Rusty Hinge

I'm entering the following challenges:

"Less is More" #329
