Spring Mosaic: Clean and Simple

Today's sample is a card that can be made in less than 10 Minutes and is 3 layers. Base is Pure Luxury Sweet Corn with a 4x 5 1/4" mat of Fresh Asparagus. I stamped the "Inspiration Mosaic" grid onto White and trimmed exactly. Stamp your greeting in the lower rectangular pan, cover it with Post-its, and then stamp a simple arrangement of tulips and lilies from "A Year of Flowers". Color with Copics (use a little C-1 grey to the white lilies. That's it! I took a picture of it at this stage and then added more embellishments and another technique before finishing, which I will share another time, because in this case, quite honestly, less is more! :)
No ribbon, no embellishments on this flat card(great for mailing), minimal supplies, but still very elegant!
Have a great day, hope you enjoyed this Mosaic Monday! Bog hop coming up!
