♥ Made from a soap box ♥

My Mum bought me a beautiful shea butter soap and I thought to myself as I was about to throw the box out to give myself a challenge to use it on a card :)
I cut out different parts of it using my Hero Arts hexagon dies and arranged them until I was happy with the design,  some of hexagons are on 3d foam dots, but can't capture on camera (",)
Using my stitched rectangle mats from Lil' inkers and stitched banner, a sentiment from a Clearly besotted, "spring blooms" set and the kraftcard as base card.
I'm going to give this card to my Mum, and she looooves framing things, so I know this will be off to my local framing studio (Sarah's framing Studio).

Have a lovely day ♥

Love how you laid out your hexagons, Marlou. Fab colours and stamping, too!
Sorry I've been away for a while, but looking back you have created some beautiful cards. I love your tulip one! xx

Gorgeous card Marlou, beautiful packaging and a great thing to re-use it. Love the hexagons and I think I'm going to have to invest in those stitched rectangles!! xx
