FAITH {POP Challenge No.21}

This month our theme for Challenge #21 at Path of Positivity is 


Faith is like radar that sees through the fog. 
~Corrie Ten Boom, Tramp for the Lord

I used the following beautiful image from The Pickled Potpourri - just click on the name of the image below to take you directly to The Pickled Potpourri's Online Shop:

The image has been printed on cream textured cardstock, cut out and the edges distressed with a Chiswick distresser tool.  The folded corners have been created with paper squares and the folded snowflakes with a scalloped square punch.  The image has lightly been touched up with Copics.  The brads and design papers are from my stash.

We are extremely pleased to announce that Sue K. will be our GDT for this challenge. Sue has just recently dipped her foot into the world of being on teams but she is a great designer and we are lucky to have her!
  • The sponsors and prizes for this challenge are:
    • A prize package of a $7 gift certificate to the Pickled Potpourri Designs store (good for any digital product), from our guest sponsors this month, for the post or project that the DT deems most inspiring of the bunch.
    • Three digital images from Fresh Brewed Designs for a person chosen in a random draw based on all entrants.
    • One digital image from Creative Bug Digital Stamps for each person chosen as a DT Delight.
There will also  be:
  • One digital designer paper (made to order in a few different ways) from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles for one lucky voter who leaves a comment.
  • One digital sentiment for every single person who enters the challenge.

Hope you will play along this month, so come on link your FAITH creations to Path of Positivity Challenge No.21. Can't wait to see your creations.
