Hexagons everywhere

Well I have been using my new hexagon die and stamp set from Papertrey ink and am very impressed with both. For my first card I used patterned paper from the snippet pile and some green and red card, the green has been stamped with versamark so that it stood out a bit more, I have made several more of this style since and tried different looks as this one is a little dark for me. I used a greeting from Papertrey and embossed in white, I used (for the first time) an embossing pen to draw the lines and for a first attempt I quite like it, must remember to use the anti static bag though lol.
