*** Take 5 Challenge

Good Thursday morning to you. Today at Meljen's Designs there is a new challenge and it's called
"Take 5". We would like you to use 5 of the same item on your project. It could be 5 of the same brads, or 5 of the same bits of ribbon or [like what I've done], 5 of the same Meljen image. I would with this cute image "Stitched Country Heart".
I coloured the hearts with Copic markers. If you take a close look you will see that I also used 5 DPs, although each one is a black & white print, each one is different & each one is a leftover from my scrap box! I used lots of distress inking on the edges and did some fun doodling around the outside edge. I used foam squares to attach the hearts to ass some dimension to my card as well. The sentiment is a digital freebie, sorry but I have forgotten who the generous artist was.
So there you have my take on "Take 5".
I do hope you will give it a try. For more great inspiration head over to the Meljen's Blog and see what the rest of the DTs came up with.

Yes, it is very true Nancy - Love is one of the most honest emotions we know! It is something we can not fake, or else it will surely backfire on us. "what goes around comes around" is absolutely fitting when it comes to honesty and love! Your card is terrific. This is one of my favourite verses in my Ministry. It says it all. And you have said it with such enormous beauty! I particularly love the striking juxtaposition of the red on the grey/black background. The print on your sentiment is powerful with all the statements in the Verse coming off the main word. I think you have done an amazing job of hitting the HONESTY challenge on the mark! Both creatively and sentimentally. I am imagining this must touch your own heart as well; it is hard for a person to create with a Verse like this if they don't relate to it in some way...this makes you an honest person in my book!! Thank you for coming to our challenge at the Positivity challenge. You have surely added to the creative and artistic flavour with your card and the wisdom speaks volumes. You bless us with your creation. Soulfully Yours, Samara DT. P.O.P.

What a beautiful creation Nancy. Gorgeous colours, a beautiful image and an awesome verse. Love certainly is one of the most honest emotions we can have. Deep down in our hearts there is no faking about what or who we truly love.

Thank you for joining us this month on the Path of Positivity. I hope we will see you again in future challenges.
