WISDOM {Path of Positivity}

This month our theme for Challenge #14 at Path of Positivity is 
WISDOM.  


He who knows all the answers, has not been asked all the questions. - Confusius


I used this quirky GRAMPS image from DIGISTAMPS4JOY who is our sponsor this month. You can purchase the GRAMPS image here.   The stars were created with punches and the brads and design papers are from my stash.  The image has been paper pieced and coloured with Copics. The sentiment is from our talented POP host/owner, Lisa and has been coloured with dry chalks.





Jackie, who is a team member of DS4J, is our GDT for this challenge.  


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.
  • Five digital 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 WISDOM creations to Path of Positivity Challenge No.14. Can't wait to see your creations.
