Take the Opportunity to Check Out the Path of Positivity

Another month means another awesome and thought-provoking challenge theme from the Path of Positivity challenge blog. This time the Path asks you to be inspired to show us your projects, thoughts and photos about Opportunity. I believe that each day is full of hidden opportunities; you just have to keep your eyes open and be aware. And remember that whether you take advantage of an opportunity or not, there is a lesson to be learned. You can grow with each encounter.
 The guest sponsors for this month are Deedee's Digis and Oddball Art Co
Today I created a Swing card to highlight the changes that this little creature goes through to get where he should be all along. The image sheet is from DeeDee's Digis and is called Caity Caterpillar and comes with  2 outline images, 2 pre-colored images, 2 white-filled layering images, and 5 sentiments, in JPG and PNG file formats.
I colored my caterpillar and butterfly with Copics before popping them onto the "swing" section of my swing card. I cut one of the sentiments in half and placed them apart. My card is covered with patterned paper from the DCWV All Boys paper pad, and I embellished it all with jeweled flowers and butterflies. Here's a topside view of the swing card-it makes a pretty presentation when open.
This month's challenge at the Path of Positivity offers several ways to win prizes:
  • 3 images from Oddball Art Co., one of our guest sponsors this month, for the post or project that the DT deems most inspiring of the bunch.
  • A $25 gift certificate from Deedee's Digis, one of our guest sponsors this month, for a person chosen in a random draw based on all entrants.
  • One digital image from Creative Bug Digital SnapShots for each person chosen as a DT Delight.
There will also be:

One digital designer paper (made to order in a couple different ways) from D├ęcosse's Dynamite Doodles for one lucky person who leaves a comment on posts published during the challenge timeframe.
One digital sentiment for every single person who enters the challenge.
