"We do not remember days, we remember moments." Cesare Pavese

you mean the world to me...

Hey there!  Had a very productive day yesterday and got three cards made... YAY!  That hasn't happened in a long time!   Sharing one of the cards that I made that works for several challenges:  Color Throwdown, CAS(E) this Sketch and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge:  vacation/travel.
 
The layout from CTS was the perfect vehicle for an idea that I have had for a long time.  I just love the Travel 2 set from Clearly Whimsy Stamps.  It is full of fun travel/vacation images and sentiments.  I used various circular images from a couple other Clearly Whimsy stamps (In the Garden and In the Garden Additions) along with the world image from Travel 2 to create my dots.  I love that clear stamps give you the ability to turn them over and use the flat side to create different looks.  After stamping all the circles and the world in the various Color Throwdown colors I added the sentiment and some clear sequins.  Two corners were rounded and the piece was mounted on the card base.  Again, a super simple card, but I really like how it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock: PTI white; Stamps:  Clearly Whimsy Stamps; Inks:  Stampin Up! and Memento; Sequins:  Pretty Pink Posh
