Stretching My Muscles with Mosaic Madness

It was a challenge in the truest sense of the word: This color combination from Create with Connie and Mary made me stretch my creativity!
Since it was a challenging color scheme, I chose to use a stamp set I haven't had any inspiration with either (a double whammy, I guess you could say). Here's my creation:
It turned out better than expected, and I feel more confident in using the Mosaic Madness stamp set, too.
