BELIEVE in the Path of Positivity's Last Challenger of 2015

Welcome to the last challenge of 2015 at the Path of Positivity challenge blog!! It has been a wonderful year, filled with happiness, uniqueness, laughter, growth, serendipity, perseverance, opportunity, sharing, dedication, resiliency and gratefulness. The challenge themes have inspired cards, scrapbook layouts, art journal pages, altered art and mixed media projects. I am so blessed to be a part of the Design team!
This month's theme is "Believe." I believe that next year will be filled with just as much inspiration and creativity as 2015 has been. I also believe that the holiday season brings more chances to believe in a better future. So I created a card today that showcases my belief in a better world, with the sentiment, "Star light, Star bright, A wish for Peace on Earth tonight." Let's make it happen in 2016, shall we? I believe in us!!
This month we have TWO fabulous sponsors for our challenge:  Fresh Brewed Designs:
and Pickled Potpourri:

For my card today, I used a digi image from pickled Potpourri called Christmas Collage.
I used several papers from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles, one if the Path's regular sponsors (and why not, as Lisa of DDD is the owner of this fabulous blog). She has a paper kit called Glitterati that is so fun and sparkly and in several colors that I couldn't resist using it as my card base, framed with a paper from her 12 Months of Christmas paper pack. I also use papers from her Christmas Grunge pack, especially to frame all my images and sentiments. The pack comes in a variety of colors as well. The strip of patterned paper in dark teal of Santa's sled and reindeer is one from a new set called "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" and is available here.

Before I go into the prize details, please check out Teresa, from Tickell Expressions.  Teresa has been a supporter of the Path of Positivity and plays along quite often, and is our Guest Design team member for December. Don;t forget to leave her a little love.

Here we go:
•A $7 gift certificate from Pickled Potpourri Designs for the post or project that the DT deems most inspiring of the bunch.
•Three images from Fresh Brewed Designs 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.
•A small selection of digital designer papers from D├ęcosse's Dynamite Doodles for one lucky person who leaves a comment on posts published during the challenge time frame.
•One digital sentiment for every single person who enters the challenge. 

So, crafters, what do you Believe?  Show us in a card, an art project, a photo, a layout or tell us in a post. And as always, have fun!!
