Daffodil Madness

Howdy, folks!  It's an overcast and rather dreary day today in my corner of England, so I made a bright and cheery card to counteract the gray skies.

I used the sneak peek set Mosaic Madness along with the new In Colors Coastal Cabana and Strawberry Slush--I must really like that combo as it's the *exact same one* used on my first Mosaic Madness card.  I think this mosaic stamp set is designed to make OCD people like me twitch when the designs aren't lined up properly ;)  Good thing I am close friends with my Stamp-a-ma-jig.  I also had to combine a cool new set with one of my favorite outgoing sets, Curly Cute.  I didn't buy that set for the longest time but once I did, I used it quite a bit and I'll miss it when it's retired!  Not that I can't (or won't) still use it anyway.

Today's card is based on the latest challenge at Freshly Made Sketches:

I think the FMS crew routinely publishes sketches that I just absolutely love :)  My Whisper White panel is all one piece, and I just masked off the bottom bit when stamping the mosaic pieces and then covered the join with ribbon, though that ribbon is a bit sheer to really hide the split.

Thanks for stopping by today!
