It's A Girl !

A new baby girl card with a rocking horse on a background of scrappy patchwork hexagon snippets, following the Tic Tac Toe at Incy Wincy Designs.  I covered a piece of cardstock with double sided tape and arranged the hexagons on top, then trimmed the edges flush with the cardstock. I probably could have gone around the "seams" with a white gel pen to make them stand out a bit better, but didn't want to mess it up once it was all stuck down  : )

I chose Die Cut + 3 or More Papers + Punch

Cardstock - 5" square white card blank, white for layering
Paper - My Minds Eye Everyday Tango
Punch - Fiskars Large Hexagon squeeze punch
Adhesives - ds tape, foam tape
Other - rocking horse die-cut from Crimson Cloud (now closed), sentiment sticker
