Hexagon Mom

I tried my hand at Seize the Sketch #3 which features hexagons

Originally I also wanted to use the Tuesday Trigger inspiration photo too, but life intervened and I did not get the cards finished in time.

I want ahead and used the ombre colors in purple anyway.
My first attempt is actually my favorite.

For card #2, I rotated the hexagons.  For some reason these hexagons were harder to place.

Card #3 has the hexagons tilted, as in the sketch.  I like them better straight but still like; the card.  I also tried a different background paper.
You may notice that they all say MOM.  I have a mother, a step-mother, and a mother-in-law.  Now I am already for Mother's Day 2014.
Supplies:  Patterned paper - 12 different purple prints, Cardstock - Bazzill Dotted Swiss Salt, Making Memories Pearl Swirl I Do & purple scraps,  Cutting - Silhouette for hexagons and letters, Fibers - assorted from my stash
