Six Sided Tic-Tac-Toe {PP152}

Happy Sunday, friends! This week lovely LeAnne is hosting our bonus 5th week Tic-Tac-Toe challenge over at The Paper Players:
Just choose any three items across, down or diagonally and have fun with it.  I had the Six-Sided Sampler stamp set (say that 5 times fast!) in mind when I picked Embossing, Friendship and Ribbon to make this sweet little card:
I started with the Epic Day designer paper and stamped a bunch of the hexagons from Six-Sided Sampler in the DSP colors: Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Daffodil Delight and Gumball Green.  Once the hexagons were punch out with the coordinating Hexagon Punch (love!), I played around until I found a pattern I liked using this week's Freshly Made Sketch(es) as my inspiration.
The other thing I love about the Six-Sided Sampler set is the wonderful sentiments that come with it!  I featured one on today's card--it's just perfect for the "friendship" element of LeAnne's Tic-Tac-Toe board!  I also used some new Candy Dots and the Alphabet Press embossing folder.
I had several punched hexagons left over so I added them to the inside along with a sentiment from Four You--soon to be a much-loved set in my craft room. 
I hope you like my Six-Sided Tic-Tac-Toe card today...be sure to check out the rest of my amazing teammates over at The Paper Players.  Maybe you'll join us this week?  There are lots of possibilites with Tic-Tac-Toe!  Just make sure to link up at The Paper Players before our challenge ends on Friday, July 5th at Noon (PDT).  Thanks for stopping by!

Look how clever you are, to have used that sketch in such a cool way! Love that you used your hexagons inside and out!! Such a sweet way to highlight this set! Thanks for making my TTT challenge look GREAT!

I love your card, Nance! The paper and hexagons are perfect for one another. You did a great job combining the two challenges, too!

Nance--
LOVE how you transitioned from the embossing folder to DSP! AWESOME card! The inside could be a card front all on it's own! THANKS for the inspiration!

And how clever are you to use hexagons for that pesky curve! Great mix of patterns! You have such a good eye (the other eye's not bad either ;)

What a great take on the sketch! I love the hexagons mimicking that curvy line! Thanks for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches!

What a cool card, Nance! I love how you used the sketch and the mix of patterns and textures is awesome. i still haven't taken that embossing folder out of the package but now I'm looking forward to opening it up. Such a fun card! :)
