LIFE IS A PROMISE ...

{Digi Stamps 4 Joy DS4J: DT Project Challenge #81}

Another design team project for our  challenge over at DS4J's challenge blog.  The theme for Challenge No.81 is DISTRESSING.  Our talented design team member, Berni is hosting this challenge.  Thanks Berni for choosing this awesome theme for us.

Another centre step design.  I have used the following image from DigiStamps4Joy:
  1. Misteri in Japan
Another centre step design.  The image has been coloured with Copics and the flowers created with a Fold It Swirls template.  The brands and photo turns are from my stash.  The sentiment is from Create with TLC and you can find it here. The sentiment is from Create with TLC and you can find it here.

Looking forward to seeing your creations. So hop on over to DS4J's challenge blog and link your Creations to Challenge #81.


Once again I would love to try my hand at the following challenges with this creation:
A big welcome to my new Followers, hope you will enjoy your visits here.  Also thank you to my loyal and faithful followers who always leave such wonderful inspiration here for me to feast on.  Love you all and leaving you with a photo I took of a flower from a Potato Bush that is in the lovely gardens within the complex we have moved to recently.

    The little wisps of blue in the flower centres, the sweet eye shadow and the blue theme adds to the Asian Mysteri allure. Your folds and flowers are famous in blog land and you inspire us all.

  46. Sweetie,
    I don't have a lot of time for what I call "Proper Blogging" these days.. but while having one of my quick scrolls down my (ever growing) Bloglovin New Posts list.. I saw this and just had to pop in and leave some love.

    It's so eye catching! You have brought the image to life beautifully.

    Really hope you are well.

    Huggles,

  47. Hi, Desire! First, thank you for the lovely potato bush bloom! How GORGEOUS it is (nothing tops Mother Nature, does it?). Wonderful blue colors on your distressed card! So pretty, and very Asian in theme. Of course, your flowers always mesmerize me because of their uniqueness - Your sentiment is so true - Our lifestyles truly reflect the promise of who we are - it took me a while to appreciate that i could genuinely be "myself" without fear, but I adore each day now. Thank you for always having a nice uplifting sentiment on your blog. hugs, de
