Can I just say, I LOVE this Honeycomb Hive Die!!! It's a great way to showcase designer papers while breaking up the pattern a bit, and adding a lot of interest to a card front. I used the Encore Silver ink instead of the Smoky Slate (on the stocking, and sponged on the cardstock edges under the ribbon), and the Basic Gray two-tone ribbon was perfect to add some contrast.
