STAMPlorations April Blog Hop Day 3


Hi All,
Welcome to Day 3 of the STAMPlorations April Stamp Release Blog Hop. Today weare introducing you to the NOTEWORTHY set, a set of 6 encouraging and uplifting sentiments.

Noteworthy-preview

I combined one of the sentiments with the large dot from the VIGNETTE Retro Mod Shapes set for today's card.


I wanted to give my card the feel of memories floating about in our minds, some of them fainter and others more in sharp focus. The good times being represented by the large sponged circle. I used pink, orange and yellow to randomly stamp my dots and also to sponge the large circle. My sentiment is black embossed and the sequins are simply symbolic of the lift one gets when remembering the good times. They are the sparkle that gets added back into life.
