GENEROSITY {Path of Positivity}

This month our theme for Challenge #10 at Path of Positivity is GENEROSITY.  

NEVER look down on anybody UNLESS you're helping him up. 

I used the beautiful HEART VASE from DIGISTAMPS4JOY who is one of our sponsors this week. You can purchase it here.   The wonderful and inspiring sentiment, all about gratitude, was also designed by Lisa herself. The heart shape around the sentiment is part of a set called Valentine Set also from DigiStamps4Joy and you can purchase it here.


The design papers are from Basic Grey and Art from the Heart.  I have coloured the image with Copic Markers and the sentiment with dry chalks.  The folded embellishments on the side panels of the centre step card has been done with folded circle punch-outs.   The heart bling shapes was part of the lovely give away I won a while back over at the very talented and generous Annie {Memories to Keep}.




The sponsors and prizes for this challenge are:

  • Ten digital images from Creative Bug Digitals 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.
  • A prize of any FIVE images from DigiStamps4Joy, our guest sponsors this month, 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 as well.
        Hope you will play along this month, so come on link your GENEROSITY creations to Path of Positivity Challenge No.10. Can't wait to see your GENEROSITY creations.  
           
        Once again I would love to try my hand at the following challenges with this creation:
        Thank you to all my wonderful Followers old and new.  Your visits here and the love you leave behind are truly treasured - thanks so much.  I leave you with some photos I took last year at the set specially built for a local movie called Pretville.  It was such a fun place to visit as all the buildings etc. really makes one go down memory lane:

        15. Desire,
          That saying is gold. Your bouquet of long stemmed miniature hearts is so dainty and endearing. You always have a fun fold BUT it is always those cute little punch out folds you have that make your cards so distinct and a cut above. Thank you for sharing this marvelous card with us here at Word Art Wednesday.
          Blessings,

        19. Hi, Desire! the first thing I thought when your card popped up was WOWOW! Always needing to inspect your cards more closely, I began dissecting it. "Annie's" blinged hearts look amazing on your masterpiece. I love all your "rounds" in the card and the beautiful coloring for your heart flowers. But the clincher are those folded rounds on either side of your card. The look amazing! You always add several "somethings" unique to your cards, and I never tire of looking for every little uniqueness. hugs, de
