CASE Study Challenge CSC145

This is my second challenge this week.   I am doing my best to master the art of blogging but it is still taking me quite a time to produce a post - in fact longer than it takes to make a card! 
I did take my time with this card though because this is for CASE Study Challenge CSC145.
I am in awe of these clever designers, they never cease to inspire and I am quite nervous about entering my creation.

This is it . . .

Hearts, Flowers and Hexagons

Stamps - You Are,  Honeycomb
Sentiment - Full of Surprise
Dies - You Are and Honeycomb

I started off by sponging a background with Versa Magic Sea Breeze and Pink Grapefruit Chalk ink and then stamped over very lightly with one of the flowers from 'You Are' in Pink Grapefruit.
I then stamped the frame from 'Honeycomb' onto a strip of card with Versa Mark 'Brick Red'
stamping inside the frame with one of the individual hexagon stamps with Distress Ink 'Tattered Rose'. 
Cutting around the strip of hexagons and added another flower from the set, which was die cut and stamped again in Brick Red.  The centre of the flower is embossed.
This was positioned and fixed with foam squares.
The hearts are punched from pieces of sponged scrap card and covered in Glossy Accents
and finished off with some tiny pearls.

That's all for now.
