Make Believe Card Kit

I have so many leftovers from the congrats card the other day that I've challenged myself to use them up--homemade card kit!

For this card I randomly cut out the center of the hexagon diecut and arranged the designer papers in the shape of a flower.  No reason, just liked it.  I added a couple of vellum feathers, sequins and a sassy gold sentiment (a couple of layers of that for greater dimension).  The lower right felt unbalanced so I whacked off the corner.  Notice I didn't fully glue down the hexagon panel or feathers--easy way to add texture and dimension without bulking up the card.  Ready for mailing!

The Details:  PTI kraft and blue-green cardstock and honeycomb die, Speckletone Madero Beach White 80# coverstock, My Mind's Eye Away We Go 6x6 designer papers, WPlus9 Fanciful Feathers Die, vellum, Lawn Fawn sentiment, Martha Stewart corner rounder

I'm entering this in Retrosketches #122, Moxie Fab Wonderful Words Challenge, Simon Says Wednesday Let's Be Clear,
