Hi Friends,

Ancient Rome Era was used elaborate borders and mosaics. I think I missed the boat on this one mine came out with kind of an Asian Flair even though I was trying for a mosaic look, first I started penciling it in and that took forever and did not look dark enough to work so I cut the background out in black and glued it on top.  Stamp A Fair 2014. The card is 4.25 x 4.25. The flower and the leaves were much prettier before I added the mosaic to it.  Still if someone were under the weather I think this card is perfect.



I used a cricut die from ornamental iron and the sentiment and the border  is from Asian Fusion. The flower and leaves are from Happiness in bloom PTI. Card stock stampers select white and vintage cream
The inks I used are CTMH topiary juniper, pear, honey and ruby. Verafine onyx black

 Don't you love it?
Thank you Lizzie Jones for the inspiration.

Have a blessed day Diana
