Mosaic Memories

Today's card was inspired by a challenge by Nancy on the Paper Wishes Message Board.  It makes use of several supplies and tools.  It starts with a "Brad Buddy" from Hot Off the Press.  This is the fish and fish bowl.  It was personalized with enamel paints.

A frame was created for the fishbowl with "mosaic" pieces cut from adhesive-backed card stock attached to a sheet of glimmer paper that was cut to shape with a Spellbinder's die in my Big Shot machine.  The mosaic pieces were cut into strips with a fancy-edged paper cutter - then cut into little bits.  A stamped sentiment and a ribbon border completes this quick and easy card.

After I took the picture, I decided I would prefer the card with rounded corners - repeating the curves of the focal, so I used my corner rounder punch to finish the look - but didn't take another picture.
