Mosaic Caribbean

Good Morning! What's new? I've got lots to share with you and I am trying to spread it out a little, but it's becoming difficult to do that AND catch up with Sara! heehee

I am still working on that set of cards for my friend and I'm trying to keep them all in a certain color set. You'll remember that it's a blue and green combination. When it came time to make an anniversary card in those colors, I gotta tell you, I was stumped! But I was finally able to come up with something! What do you think?
I went all the way back to Sara's Sketch #1 for this sketch. And I dusted off a very old, but still pretty juicy Caribbean Sea Kaleidacolor ink pad!

Details, details- Card base is black. A Divine Swirls cuttlebugged Cool Caribbean layer is mounted onto Whisper White. I punched out the large oval and stamped Happy Anniversary (Stampendous) here. Now, I didn't have a stamp that actually fit here so I used my Stampamajig and made THIS:
stamp work. So, Yes, Tracy, I think the Stampamajig is a good investment. It's like having more stamps in your closet! The "Mosaic Heart" stamp (OLD Stampin UP set) is stamped onto glossy white with Palette Noir black which has been brayered with the Caribbean Sea KPad. And the strip is Soft Swirls also in the same KPad.
I've got more than one post today..... I promise. So check back!
I feel like stampin'.....

Another beautiful card, Angel! Love this carribbean color, I still wish Stampin up didn't retire the cool carribbean. I love the look that the ink pad makes with your mosaic stamp.
Great job, thanks for sharing with me!!
