My Mind's Eye Challenge

I was so excited to see the new challenge that was posted on the My mind's Eye blog this month. It was all about the hexagon, something many of us have been enjoying using as of late! Their Follow Your Heart collection was the perfect choice for this too!

My base page is actually from their Miss Caroline line, the rest is from the 6x6 Follow Your Heart paper pad.

I misted over a cut out heart with Mr. Huey's to get the faint heart on my background.
Then I put my Cameo to use to cut out the vellum and paper butterflies, and the word 'beauty'.
The word 'true' was done with Papertrey Ink dies.

I love the subtle butterflies, however they kind of faded into the soft colors of the layout, so I inked the edges up a bit and added some glitter to them to help them stand out a bit.

Hand stitched a double line around the layout to help tie it all together.

While I had things scattered around my desk I went ahead and made a few cards with the remains.

This one was for a sketch challenge on 2 Peas last week.

A couple of cards for Mother's Day.

Thanks for taking a peek!
