Mosaic Thinking of You

Hello everyone! I needed a masculine card for a dear friend from church who has been recovering from surgery. Just wanted to let him know we miss him. I was excited when I saw this mosaic technique used by Dawn at Dawn's Stamping Thoughts. You can view her video here. It seemed perfect for what I had in mind. The mosaic pieces are reblessed cuttings of some picture printing "goofs" I had. They added a wonderful sheen to the card. I also used silver embossing powder on the mosaic as well as the sentiment. Hope you like it and you'll try this technique. Great fun! Thanks for visiting and come back soon! Blessings to you!
