Anniversary Card #2

Here is the other anniversay card I made for my "card blitz week"  This one is for my brother and sister-in-law.  They are celebrating 22 years of wedded bliss this year.

I got the idea from a SU! demonstrators meeting I went to a few months back.  I ran a piece kraft CS through my Xyron to make it into a "sticker sheet".  I placed 1" squares of patterned paper on it leaving a gap for the "grout"  You could use odd shaped pieces too, to give a more broken tile mosaic look to it. 

After the paper was in place I covered it with vanilla embossing powder, tapped off the excess and heat set it.

The butterfly is a Sizzix die/embossing combination I found at Sam's Club online.  The center is black rhinestones from PTI.

Thanks for stopping by!
