CPS 231

So I need wedding shower cards, and I loved this week's CPS.  I had in my original vision, a light flowery shower card.  But then I bought the gift and its dark colors and a mosaic pattern and matched so well with the sketch this week so I ended up with this:

I couldn't get a really good picture of the whole card, I think because of the shine off the embossed layer (or maybe because I kinda suck at photography), but I really love how this turned out.

The large mosaic focal layer was inspired by the shower gift I bought ... a set of dishes that have this mosaic pattern on it in about the same colors (a terracotta/reddish color and black)

Here is a screen shot of the plate:

and here is my focal layer

Thanks for stopping!
