Mosaic Madness for TSSC264

It's Monday already and time for a new sketch for the Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge at Technostamper.  Here's a look at this week's sketch.

I have been having a ton of fun using the new Mosaic Madness stamp set, so of course I used it for this challenge!

My color inspiration came from the piece of Quatrefancy DSP that I picked.  The colors are Island Indigo, Pool Party, and Soft Sky.  The Island Indigo card base was embossed with the Modern Mosaic EF.  I added a layer of Soft Sky CS next.  Then I added in the design elements.  The DSP was layered over a strip of Island Indigo to make it pop.  I die cut a piece of Soft Sky CS with the smallest Window framelit and stamped a mosaic on it with Island Indigo. 

I decided to make the mosaic pattern pop more by stamping with Island Indigo on Whisper White CS and cutting them out.  I adhered them to the originally stamped design with dimensionals.  I added small pearls to the center of each mosaic as a finishing touch.  I layered my framelit cut out to Island Indigo CS and hand cut around the framelit to add a matting.  This piece was adhered to the center of the DSP with a dimensional.  The last thing to add was a greeting.  I used Teeny Tiny Wishes for the greeting which was stamped in Island Indigo.  A couple pearls on each side of the greeting and my card is complete!

This is really pretty, love the popped up elements in the focal area! The pearls are a great touch, always love this color combo too. Another great card, thanks so much Nicole for all the great samples for my challenge each week!
