Happy Spring Hexagon Card

So I was all proud of my self, because I made a bunch of these cards at the beach retreat I attended at the beginning of February, so I had my card for this week's new sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge done totally early for once! Aaaaaand then I gave away every single on of these cards without taking any pictures. Luckily my good friend Amanda saved my bacon with some phone shots so I could share some more bunny cuteness with y'all.
When I saw this week's cute sketch I thought immediately of those pale blue robin's eggs with the brown speckles and so I set out to make that background. Here you are looking at the painful way - I spritzed the hexagons with brown shimmer spray and then lined them up, adhering them one by one to the background. Halfway through my mass productions my brilliant friend Cathy mentioned I should just spritz the background and use the hexagon frame scraps (The hexagons are a cricut cut, so the outlined of the hexagons were just sitting in a pile next to my piles of hexagons) as an overlay on the spritzed background. That was way easier, so I made a bunch for our swap and a few that said Happy Valentine's Day for the boys' teachers! That's how I ended up giving them all away.  
In any case, I love the little bunny peeking out from behind the sentiment, and they were fun to make even when gluing on a bazillion hexagons. The bunny and border images are colored with watercolor pencils. You can find the new Atlantic Hearts sketch HERE if you'd like to play along. You have just about another week to grab these cute bunnies before the hop away for good!

I love how you used hexagons as the grid background for the sketch! Your little bunny peeking behind the sentiment is just darling. Great job!
