Let's Bond

When Paper Smooches came out with the Great Chemistry set, I knew I had to have it! (Must be the science geek in me ;)), so I pulled it out today and used it to make a card for this week's Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge.  The challenge this week is this sketch:

When I saw the sketch, I immediately thought about making a gatefold card, so here's how it turned out:

I had to use a little clip to keep it shut for the pic.  I recycled some packaging from Paper Smooches dies for the hexagon and striped border.  On the hexagon, I clear embossed the flasks from the set.  Colored up the scientist and adhered them with foam tape.  Under the fold, I stamped the sentiment and the hexagons from Geo-Graphics.  I selectively colored in some of the hexagons for to add a little more color.  And I finished it all by rounding the top corners.  

And once it's open there's another one of the sentiments stamped on the inside.

Thanks for stopping by,
