CAS 43: U and I, the special day

This card is my second attempt to the Hexagon challenge over at CASology.
"Thinking out of the box" is one of my goals as a crafter for this year.
 Whenever I made a card I reminded myself of that phrase and tried to apply it to the process of cardmaking. It is unable to be creative all the time but I know it is important to implant a seed of creative mind in each step of making a card.
 So a creative seed in me is telling me not to use hexagon die or stamp but to use other shapes that could possibly make hexagon. Do I have to use a triangle stamp? I tried several times with some stamps of triangle shapes but didn't get any satifactory results.
I ended up with this card.
 It didn't give me satisfaction either.
But I would like to give me a credit to the point that I tried to think out of the box.
The stamp set I used here is "Today Was" from Sweet Stamp shop.
When I saw a photo frame stamp with grid lines in it, my thought immediately went to draw a line to shape a hexagon. I was also thinking that the hexagon I created with hand drawing would be good for presenting a simple word like "U and I."   

As you see It is not a perfect shape because it's hand drawn hexagons over the grid lines.
It has some squiggly lines but the hexagons are good enough to celebrate our(U & I) "the" special day. :D
Thanks for stopping by my blog. 
Hope you have a good weekend.
