DARE TO BE DIFFERENT
{Digi Stamps 4 Joy DS4J: GDT Project for Scrappin All Over}

DS4J is sponsoring the current challenge over at Scrappin All Over and this is my GDT Project for their the challenge.  The theme is a Colour Inspiration i.e. Pink+Green+White.  

Another Centre Stepper design and I have used two different DigiStamps4Joy Images from their new Misteri series of digis, namely:
  1. Juvenile Misteri Tribal Dancer and you can purchase her here
  2. Misteri's Mystery and you can purchase her here
All the images were coloured with Copics and the sentiment with dry chalks.  'The flower embellishments were created with 2" scalloped square punches. The sentiment is a freebie Hannelie (Desert Diva).  The pink design paper is from BasicGrey and the green design paper is from Best Creation In.  The image of the building I sourced as a free download from the internet and have posted it below for you to snag.  My design team mate from Tammy's Scrapin Corner, Pam has given us the heads up on these free building images on the net.  Thanks Pam.

So hop on over to Scrappin All Over and link your COLOUR INSPIRATION creation to their Challenge #13.







The image of the building I used is available for printing for personal use.  You can find it by going to:
http://www.freecoloringpagefun.com/buildings/highrise3.shtml.

Once again I am off to link this project up to the following challenges:

    Then I also would like to promote the wonderful and special Lisa's exciting new Challenge called The Path of Positivity. You can link up any creation which has a positive vibe to it, albeit just an inspirational sentiment or a blog post filled with inspiration.

    Lisa also regularly recognises achievements in blog land and you can hop on over to her personal blog Decosse's Dynamite Doodles, and you might just spot one or two of your own achievements being recognised.  And the best of all is that she often have sentiment freebies which she graciously shares with her readers.

     Here is Lisa's exceptional outlook:
    "It can be rather difficult at times keeping track of everyone and unfortunately I miss a lot of people but I'm only one person and do what I can to acknowledge everyone's accomplishments.  There are certain imperatives that I developed for myself and while some are slipping into more monthly than weekly I still feel that acknowledging others is a huge part of why I am here blogging.  That is why I started the showcase and the spotlight and of course then got into the congrats.  We all know how good it feels when someone recognizes our accomplishments and I want to be that person out here doing that in our corner of the blogging world.  It is incredible how much my blog has morphed from that initial idea of having a place to post cards.  However, I feel that for the first time in a rather long time, I am making a difference again. Being able to touch even just a few people or bring inspiration someone's way and know that I have done so is the only reward I need."

    Thank you once again to my wonderful Followers for leaving such inspirational comments here.  I have reached 600 Followers and my 600 Follower Celebration Give Away will be here soon.

  14. Ich bin begeistert von Deiner wunderschönen Karte Desire. Mir gefällt, wie Du die verschiedenen Papiere angeordnet und geschnitten hast. Die Blumen hast Du auch wieder so toll gearbeitet. Ich habe immer noch niemanden entdeckt, der die Blumen so schön macht wie Du.
    Die Stempelmotive sind wunderschön.

    Liebe Grüße, Carmen

  16. Hi, Desire - Happiness is what I felt when your blog post opened up. The girls reminded me of me in so many ways - (back in the 60s and 70s) but also because my mom was always asking why I had to be so different. I didn't really feel different than most people, but --- and now I am grateful for being who I am. That is what your card says to me - be happy for who you are. Love all the fussy cutting. Green and pink tones are one of my favorite color combos. Those little "flowers" or embellies on the left are VERY unique! LOVE them, down to the little paper through at an angle, and left straight. Your background papers look fabulous. Thanks for sharing about the new group - I am now following. hugs, de
