Stretch a Square Stamp

Hello friends! 

I am popping in to share a card with some extra stamping.
 This Altenew Stone Mosaic features a 2.6" x 2.6" mosaic background consisting of four layers.

About this stamp: Stamp the solid backdrop layer first in any color of your choice, then fill in the other three layers with either complementary or contrasting colors. The pattern is seamless, so you can extend the pattern to cover larger areas. The set includes ten happy greetings that are sure to put a smile on someone's face. This is a perfect set for experimentation and to have fun with colors!"

For my project, I stamped the Stone Mosaic background twice and created a mosaic rectangle.
It's really is a no-brainer.

I chose soft color combo for this. I love how it turned out. However, once I did the stamping, I was kind of stumped as to what to do next .... in flies the butterflies!

 I then stamped the sentiment in between the mosaic to cover one tiny white line that I missed.
It's not very obvious, but you may see if you look closely.

To make the design more cohesive, I added a few black splatter and that made a world of difference to me.

A beautiful card Virginia. Great idea to do the stamping twice to increase the length of the piece. I really like the colours you did the mosaic in.
