Challenging myself with the Hexagon Hive Framelit and Sweet Sorbet

If you've been following me on my blog or Pinterest lately, you would know how much I LOVE the Sweet Sorbet paper pack that is one of our free offerings this month.  I love them all.. and have been using them Ad Nauseum. There is one however, that I dont like quite as much as the others. Well its not that I dont like it exactly, but I think it is hard to use. It's the one you see in the card in the post - the black and stripy paper. I've been using the reverse side of it (which is a lovely design in Crumb Cake) quite a lot, so there has certainly been no wastage. But for a while now I've been thinking... what can I do with that paper??

So tonight I challenged myself to use it. I had borrowed the Hexagon Hive Framelit from a team member (Hello Ellen!) and wanted to create something tonight so I can give it back to her tomorrow. So I came up with the idea of using the black stripy DSP behind the hexagon die (which I had cut from Silver Foil).  I added some Petite Petals flowers cut with the matching punch, and a word from the "Just Sayin" stamp set. I used the matching framelits to cut that one too.

So do I like it? Well its probably not my most favourite card ever.. mostly because its not really my style... but I am really chuffed that I came up with a way to use that paper that kinda works.
