Hexagons and the Olympics

So I’ve been playing around with the Olympic Flag colors to participate in this month’s challenge at Words 2 Scrap By. When the call out came from OWH’s Midweek Throwdown Challenge to make a card using hexagons, I used some of the items I had already die cut and here is my card. Wplus9 Quilt pattern was used for the hexagons and the sentiment is from Hero Arts called Everyday Greetings (cut up into three). I incorporated the colors of the Olympic Flag and then thought about the athletes and what they train for – bronze, silver, gold medals. So I embossed the sentiment in bronze, gold and silver. The bronze looks like gold in the photo but shows up very nicely in person. You may want to join in the fun over at Words 2 Scrap By – check it out.

  3. This card is so inventive and attractive. You had a wonderful mind to come up with this design and to think to use the colors of the medals for your sentiments. Wonderful card and thought process too. I wish my mind worded that good. LOL Have a great day.
