A SMILE. ..

{DT Project Path of Positivity: Challenge #6}

I am so thrilled to be part of this very special Design Team for Path of Positivity Challenge.  This challenge is quite unique in a way as the themes for the monthly challenges are all about being Positive.  In the words of Lisa herself: 

"To that end, I have been inspired to create a place where I can come to see projects or posts that provide help, hope, courage, love, forgiveness, peace, motivation, encouragement, etc. A place to come especially on those days when the woes of the world just seem too much to bear. This is a place I would like to share with others who feel as I do. Therefore, welcome to the 'Path of Positivity Challenge' -- a different sort of challenge blog designed to inspire, nurture and provide support for the soul by creating a positive path to follow, one project or post at a time!"

This week our theme for Challenge #6 at Path of Positivity is HONESTY I used the beautiful Flower 6 from Scribbles Designs.  You can purchase it here.  The wonderful and inspiring sentiment,coloured with dry chalks, all about honesty, was designed by Lisa herself.

The flourishes were stamped with Chiswick acrylic stamps.  The flowers have been coloured with Copics and a white gel pen. The design papers are from my stash. The jewel stones are from Blueberry Bear.  The folded embellishments were created with circle punch-outs.







The sponsors and prizes for this challenge are:
  • Ten digital images from Creative Bug Digital Stamps for the person out of the top seven who receives the most votes during voting week 
  • Three digital images from Ike's World for the post or project that the DT deems most inspiring of the bunch. 
  • Five digital images from this month's guest sponsor, Scribbles Designs, for a person chosen in a random draw based on all entrants. 
  • One digital designer paper from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles for one lucky voter who leaves a comment. 
  • One digital sentiment for every single person who enters the challenge from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles.
      Hope you will play along this month, so come on link your HONESTY creations to Path of Positivity Challenge No.6. Can't wait to see your OPTIMISM.  Receiving a free sentiment just for entering the challenge should be a great incentive in itself - and Lisa's sentiments are wonderful judging by the one I used on my card.
         
      Once again I would love to try my hand at the following challenges with this creation:
      Thank for all your friendly visits here in my little space in blog land.  The love you leave behind is so inspiring, and please know that I try and return the love, most of the times.

      53. Hey Desíre,

        Two words: Bold and Beautiful. Everything about your card screams AWESOME. From the paper choices to your colours, from the embellishments to the area you created to display the sentiment; all of it comes together to create another phenomenal card my friend. It is also nice to see all the positive comments on the sentiment you used--warms my heart. Maybe that will be the one I offer up during the midpoint of the challenge and you'll be able to let your readers know where to find it.

        Thanks for your continued support my friend.

        Hugs,
        Lisa
