  1. This idea is definitely a keeper. Love that you used 2 sizes of hexagons. #D roses are always dramatic on a card. Thanks for this tutorial!

    • I’m a Fiska-loving Fiskateer! Did all the posting thigns! I just got the Everywhere punch starter. What fun! Also love the detail scissors. What’s not to love about Fiska-toys?!! My next purchase will probably be Fiskars trimmers for hub’s berry vines.
