CTD#224 - Happy Hexagons

 It's time for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge.  Our hostess for this week is Lori who chose our pretty color pallet and inspiration photo.
For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Think Big Favorites #12 for my sentiment and the Happy Hexagon and scallop border dies to create a quilted look using this week's colors.  I pulled different colors and patterns from my stash of My Mind's Eye designer papers to die cut using the hexagon die and arranged them on my card, added my almost amethyst lower panel with sentiment, scallop border piece, ribbon and buttons to complete my card.

Those hexagons are, indeed, happy! Such perfect detail, by putting all those pretty PP pieces into the cut outs. Love this one... Made me smile on this foggy day.
