Here is my card - 
As always, when I craft using my Alacraft products, I got everything out, and sat looking at it, trying to visualise a card coming together... This month, I wanted something super bright, and fun.... So, this card was born! 
I started by grabbing out the masculine paper pad (the girly one is available too!) I've gotten a LOT of mileage out of these paper pads, and for only $2 each, it's an absolute bargain... any way, I grabbed the yellow and gray papers from the paper pad, and trimmed them down, to fit my square card base. The gray paper actually had an alien, and sentiment on opposing corners (which I've saved for later), but I trimmed them out, and just used the hexagons... I layered them together, and added a small piece of teal satin ribbon, and adhered it using some double sided tape. My next step was colouring up my Greeting Farm stamp, which I did with my Spectrum Noir Markers, before fussy cutting her out. (these scissors are awesome for getting into tight spots). Next, I placed little Anya on to a diecut doily, and added a stamped sentiment, onto another diecut. I attached an orange button, threaded with some twine, and two varying sized turquoise rhinestones.
