Hexagon Rainbow Mother's Day card No.1

Hi Crafty Friends,

Here's my 2nd card for tonight and I made 2 cards using this same paper/die cut - the other is coming up and I used the negative (or positive bits, not sure which I'd say was which hehe). I was playing around with my new distress inks on thin watercolour paper and I really wasn't impressed with my first attempt. I almost threw this paper out but decided to die cut it instead with my hexagon die. I love how it looked when it wasn't all one straight piece. I also added a feather die cut, sequins and heat embossed a Mother's Day sentiment on vellum. I added the hexagon die cut to a double sided adhesive sheet and then added glitter to all the hexagon centres to look like glitter paper underneath.
