CD 453 - Hexagon Birthday

Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge 453!

The colours on the tic-tac-toe this week are taken from the Wander paper pack.

I started out using just three colours and ended up with a complete tic-tac-toe as I used every colour (plus gold).

The background was embossed with a woodgrain embossing folder on Linen cardstock. I used Linen ink to rub over the raised sections to define the embossing a little more. That piece was then die cut using a stitched rectangle die. Several hexagons were die cut from a variety of papers in the colours on the grid. They were arranged across the centre of the card. The sentiment was die cut from Peacock cardstock and stacked a few times. I added some gold embellishing thread and gold glitter gems around the card. 

Come and join us at Colour Dare and show us how you use the tic-tac-toe grid shown above.
