Beautiful quote, isn't it? Very appropriate for several occasions. Our DT has made wonderful samples for you on how to interpret this. You can be inspired by only one word, some words or the whole quote. 

This challenge is sponsored by STAMPlorations, whose owner and designer Shery we are proud to have as one of our design team members. The prizes are amazing: a 20 $ gift voucher for the winner and 10 $ vouchers for each of our two honorable mentions! Thank you Shery for these generous prizes! 

We are also happy to have Marina back as our guest designer. Marina is a wonderful card artist crossing between many styles -have a look at her blog My Perfect Life if you are not familiar with it already!
