Triplicate Trials Tuesday Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Triplicate Trials Tuesday (TTT) Blog Hop. This week's challenge is being featured as a blog hop. If you arrived here from Alberta's blog then you are in the right place. If you are just stopping by, why don't you start from the beginning. This hop will run from September 6th to September 18th.

Comment on all participating blogs (I have a full list at the bottom of this post) AND create a project to win our GRAND PRIZE of TWO WILSON DESIGNS STAMP SETS of your choice!  There will be ONE lucky grand prize winner.  As an added bonus some of the Triple T Team will be offering blog candy on their blogs!

If you've never participated in one of TTT's challenges before, you are in for a treat. You are given 3 elements (color palette, sketch, and a theme) to complete your project. Above is this week's challenge. At first I was a little taken back by the theme. I couldn't really find anything that resonated with me. After speaking with one of my besties the other night, it hit me. I've been reading, "The Power" and it talks about how you have to give positivity to receive all the good things in the world. I took a little inspiration from the cover and the book.

Here's my card.

The ying-yang comes from Pagoda and is cut at 3 inches. The pattern paper is from the DCWV Mango Frost stack. The red and orange are in the pattern paper. The inside this card reads, "Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without. ~ Buddha". 

I hope you like my project. Now jump on over to Caryn's blog and continue the fun! Remember to leave a comment on each blog and link your project up at Triplicate Trials for a chance to win the Grand Prize.
