I am very excited and honored to be the Guest Designer this month for the Path of Positivity Challenge Blog. I discovered this challenge blog a couple months ago and absolutely love their focus. The tag line below their blog header says, "A unique 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!" You can find out more about the how's and why's of the blog's origin by visiting this Introduction page. There is a theme word each month and when linking up your project they like you to include how your project goes along with the theme. It doesn't have to be a long explanation, just a sentence or so to help make the connection.
The theme word for this month is Serendipity. Serendipity means "fortunate happenstance" or a "pleasant surprise" (source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
We have two great sponsors this month for the challenge: Lunagirl and Sami Stamps. You can find all the details on the prizes that can be won on the Path of Positivity Challenge blog. Lunagirl generously provided a collage sheet for me to play with for today's card. I used one of the eight images from the Vintage Romance #1 digital collage sheet. The vintage style and I are still working out our relationship (ha!) but this image and these papers just seemed to go together and made it easy for me. I added some pretty die cuts, pearls, ribbon, dry embossing and lots of layers and the front was done.
I kept the interior pretty simple and just printed a digi sentiment and matted it.
Cardstock: Recollections, Bazzill, Georgia Pacific (for image)
Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye
Stamps: Luna Girl, Sweet 'n Sassy digis (Love Sentiments, Valentine's Sentiments)
Tools/Embellishments: Michael's ribbon, Queen & Co. pearls, Spellbinders dies (Classic Ovals Large and Small, Lacey Ovals, Floral Ovals), Cuttlebug embossing folder (Victoria)
