Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

The Design Team is looking forward to seeing your crafty makes and will pop around to visit you ASAP!

Mmmm I made a nice card (the one below) then at last minute realise a huge mistake I made, the clue is in the name of the challenge.

I used Avery Elle Pierced Hexagon for the challenge, it came with the cute flower dies too.

So with a little help from Simon says Stamp Moments of Grace stamp which has the lovely script and the perfect fit inside my Hexagon. Not forgetting the Quilted Hearts Background stamp from Simon says Stamp.

My little white dots are Nuvo Crystal Drops Simple White, I keep saying less is more but I don't seem to be able to stop myself.

Here you can see the green version with flowers made with left over scraps of card.
Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.

Both cards are so pretty. Love those bitty flowers. They make the perfect design element to bring the focus to your sentiment.

Gorgeous cards Debby :-) the hexagon frame is fabulous and I love the flowers and background, very pretty :-)

I did the same thing, happily made a card with no thought to the theme 😂

Hope you have a great week

Ooops Debby! Both versions are beautiful though and the quilted background is fabulous it goes with anything and I love it. The hexagon with the sentiment is so pretty with the flowers and love the added Nuvo drops, the perfect finishing touch. x
