Today's variation on yesterday's sketch is...heavier. Yes, it's visually heavier than yesterday's cards. But the monochromatic approach helps the busier design retain its fresh, CAS feel.
The sentiment placement just wasn't working where it was in the sketch, so I moved it up and picked a sentiment with a cursive first word to rest on the top of one hexagon while the rest of the words run over the design. The random-ish pearls were added for a bit of interest...subtle but pretty, and their randomness balances (hopefully) the tidy hexagons.
I really like this card, but I really didn't like making it. Lining up all those hexagons was a pain and took longer than I would have liked.
Just call me lazy.
