The basecard for this card is Fresh Freesia Cardstock.  Then a layer of Rich Razzelberry, and then my image layer is Basic White.  For the Hexagon shapes, I selected two prints from the Dainty Flowers 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper, a Free Sale-A-Bration selection available with a $50 (less tax and shipping beginning 5 January 2023. The floral I selected included small flowers in Reich Razzelberry and the background was a faint shade of Fresh Freesia.  I used a hexagon die from the Beautiful Shapes Dies to create my die cuts.

I arranged my hexagon shapes and glued them into place and trimmed them...All except the Basic White hexagon that was dry embossed with the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder.  To avoid flattening the embossing, I glued that hexagon into place after I die cut the opening for my sentiment.  Once my hexagons were in place, I die cut through my Basic White Layer and my Rich Razzelberry layer and stamped my sentiment in Rich Razzelberry ink on my Fresh Freesia layer using sentiment from the Something Fancy Stamp Set.

To complete my card, I die cut a Basic White using one of the butterflies from the Brilliant Wings Dies.  Next, I scattered a few of the In Color Opal Rounds in Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent to the card front.  Finally, I added a small bow of Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon and attached it with Glue Dots.
