Hexagons for a Birthday

My second card ever made with PTI Hexagon Cover Plate & Happy Hexagons stamp set.  The sentiment is from Trendy Tree Tops.  I'm entering 2 of the PTI 7th Anniversary contests: Today's Birthday Card challenge & one of the sketch & color recipe options.
Sketch-3Color-4
My inks are PTI Simply Chartreuse, Summer Sunrise, Distress spiced marmalade, Memento Love Letter & Versafine Smokey Gray.  I left the twine lying over the card last night, not thinking it was going to work. However, this morning I decided I liked the look so attached it & tied the little bow.  
I don't know what took me so long to start using this set.  It is way fun to work with! Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog.
