I LOVE this card. Why? It's all about the UNEXPECTED, folks.
Of course when I was creating the front panel I was working with straight lines. Punched squares, halved them on the diagonal and then glued them down. But when playing around with the finished piece of paper with the squares/triangles on it (it was larger than the card front) I skewed it a bit and fell in LOVE. The UNEXPECTED, ya know?!?!? And because I had skewed it, the design didn't cover the entire card but that was my next eureka moment! I just trimmed along the CS triangles and love the bit of white card left to peek out.
I hadn't really known exactly where I was going with this card (I seldom do), but when the eurekas were over it became apparent (to me!) that it was an iceberg. So... enter the sentiment. Which BTW is computer-generated for those of you who don't own a Dymo. Here's the font.
I'm joining these challenges:

Bubbly? you ask. Here's the deal. We drink carbonated mineral water in our house. And refer to it as "bubble water". Bubbly... bubble... water... iceberg... see?
Check out the mag if you haven't. In case you're still looking for ideas using hexagons, there's lotsa inspiration.
Appreciate your visit. Have a fantastic week.
