Peace - from the Path Of Positivity Challenge blog

Happy Monday!  Today is the start of a new challenge on the Path Of Positivity challenge blog and our theme for this month is PEACE.  

Our fabulous sponsor for this month is
SNS Blinkie
http://sparklensprinkle.com/


and Lisa has provided a wonderful free sentiment on the blog for those who wish to play along...

I was so excited to get to work with an image from our sponsor this month and had such a fun time looking through all the wonderful images on their site.  I decided upon this stunning image of a hummingbird titled Calliope Hummingbird.



I printed the image onto white cardstock and then pulled out some of my favorite Copic colors and got busy coloring this wonderful image in.  I then fussy cut it out once it was finished.  I found this wonderful saying that I wanted to use on my card and printed it onto the cardstock base before folding it into my card shape.  I knew I wanted to showcase this fabulous creature in flight, so I printed this wonderful dahlia image (from our sponsor from last month Pickled Potpourri) and added to my card front.  I think this card is just the thing to ring in spring and a reminder to slow down and find Peace in the beauty around us.



I kept the remaining background plain, just using my chalks to give a sky-like effect behind the image.

What brings you Peace?  Create something and join in this month on the Path of Positivity challenge blog!
