Mosaic Love in Snow

I live in North Carolina and we woke this morning to SNOW!! We knew it was coming but never expected this much! We got about 6 inches and it kept falling until late into the afternoon.  My kids had so much fun playing in it!! The most amazing part was the snowflakes! It was a "dry" snow, so when it fell and landed on you, you could actually see the design of it!! It was just so cool... this is a picture of the tree in front of our house.  The down side to having this wonderful day? My kids have no school tomorrow!! (Sniff, sniff...)  apparently the school did not get my memo of having much to do before leaving on Thursday!! Yes... just 2 more days until I see Cammie and then were off to CHA!! Can't wait to share with you the pictures!

NOW... on with a card!

I am finally getting around in finishing Monday's challenge on SCS! It was making faux mosaics.  
Mine, however, blended a bit too much with the color and shimmer of my paper, so it was a little more difficult to make out.  I used some fun Valentine paper by Reminisce which I picked up at a lss.  Of course, since I had to cut it up, you really can't see it, but I did use the back side of the paper for the bg! : )  I used a CTMH set called Heart throb which I had won as blog candy.  I stamped the image and flower and cut it out.  I popped up pretty much everything and used my SU! Wide oval punch for the sentiment.  Thanks for taking a look and I will have some blog candy to share soon!! 

Thanks to Betty (gbedwright) for giving me the Butterfly award!  You are too sweet! I am to pass it on to others and the list is below.  Check out their blogs!
