Something for the Big Boy challenge

Shopping Our Stash's challenge this week is "Something for the Big Boy" meaning create a card for a teenage boy or an adult male. Masculine cards don't come easy to me, but I thought these old BasicGrey papers fit the bill.  It is extremely time consuming, but I enjoy paper piecing dies...especially when I choose multiple patterned papers; that way I can make enough multiples to use all of those little pieces (in this case, hexagons!)

Both the hexagon background die and the banner die are by Papertrey Ink.  The large brick hexagon is a Creative Memories punch, then I glued it to a scrap of white card stock and fussy cut around it.  The mini glazed brads are by My Mind's Eye.

Happy Tuesday!

Beautiful and colorful with a fantastic design. And, it looks very difficult to make. Obviously, you are up to the task. Great job!
