New Floral Mosaic Mat Die

Happy Tuesday!  I know I've been quiet for a few days.  Well that is because I was on the Oregon Coast with my family (hubby, daughter, mom and her boyfriend).  It was my Mom's birthday and it is an annual trip. We go to search for glass floats that are hand blown by glass artists and hidden on the beach.  The floats are lovely and amazing and my mother has found probably found half a dozen in the 10 years we've been going.   I myself haven't found any, but I don't mind, I go for the family time and beach time  My Mom claims that once you've found one, you are hooked for a few years.  We call it "Float Fever...." which by the way she has passed onto my daughter.  Soph doesn't have much stamina to look and technically hasn't found one, but Grandma and Grandpa Dan planted one for her this year.  Shhhhhh, don't tell!  Here is a cute pic of her feeling excited by her find.  Love that sweet face!

When I go I try to get a little craft time.  Though I didn't make this card this weekend, I wanted to share it with you today.  This uses the brand new Top Dog Dies Flower Mosaic A2 Mat Die.  This is one of my faves of their new release, it is so fun and has sooooo many possibilities.  I went with a solid color on this, beautiful Rich Razzleberry, and added some gold accents (embossed gold leaves and the love clip).  I think this color combo matched with this glorious die make such an elegant combo perfect for a wedding or sympathy card or so many other occasions.  Check out the TDD gallery to see more of my teamies creations with these.

Today's Question of the Day is- if you had this die, what would you use it for?

A trip to the Oregon coast...that's on my dream list (we're off to Bend soon. So excited. I love Bend!). Your daughter - adorable - and the search for 'floats' sounds like such a wonderful adventure. You've showcased the mosaic die beautifully;the colours work perfectly with your love clip! If I had this di, i think I'd use it as you have, as a cover up; perhaps as a stencil; and perhaps use 'parts' to make some darling mini cards. I can picture adding butterflies...Thanks for the day-brightening post!
