Faux Tile

I am so excited to play for the first time at Mynnette's challenge blog, Technique Tuesday!  The challenge this month is faux tile, which I combined with the color challenge at colourQ.
Mynnette always has amazing step-by-step directions on her blog.  Make sure to check them out if you have never done tile before!  I have done square tiles before, but never thought to make them different shapes and sizes.  I love the variety it added to my card!
I didn't have any of the now-retired Bermuda Bay, so I used Island Indigo in its place.  I did hang on to Pear Pizzazz for some reason. It is SOOO close to Certainly Celery that I guess I thought they might replace it with PP someday! :)  I loved the tile look so much that I didn't want to add to much to my card and cover it up.  A simple strip of ribbon, the sentiment and one of the doilies die cut with the smallest framelit from Floral Frames.  That framelit matched up with the stamp almost perfectly! 
Stamp Sets: Delicate Doilies, Lacy & Lovely
Cardstock: Island Indigo, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Gray, Island Indigo, Pear Pizzazz, Real Red
Tools: Apothecary Accents Framelits, Floral Frames Framelits
Accessories: Island Indigo Ruffled Ribbon, Rhinestone Basic Jewels
