Hexagon Patchwork - Red, Yellow, and Blue

A pattern of hexagons, bright prints on white.  It reminds me of an old patchwork quilt.  Thank you to Monica K, who sent me a batch of hexagon die cuts to play with!  

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink summer sunrise (yellow sentiment layer), stamper's select white, and several pattern packs: pure poppy (red) stripe, enchanted evening (blue) gingham, and summer sunrise bitty dot.  The six punched dots on the hexagons are pure poppy, summer sunrise, and enchanted evening.
  • Note: the gray is background, not part of the card. 
  • The red line is drawn with Sanford Uni-ball gel impact pen.  
  • Dies are Papertrey Ink hexagon cover plate and double-ended banner (white sentiment banner).  The small dots are punched with a 1/4" hole punch.
  • The sentiment "Thanks!" is computer-printed in blue ink with American Typewriter font (bold, expanded spacing).
