MAKE THINGS BEAUTIFUL {POP Challenge 18 - Determination}

This month our theme for Challenge #18 at Path of Positivity is 

DETERMINATION


Ambition is the path to success,
persistence is the vehicle you arrive in.

I used the following beautiful image from The Pickled Potpourri - just click on the name of the image below to take you directly to The Pickled Potpourri's Online Shop:



I have up-cycled another empty 5-Roses Tea Box (yes we do consume a lot of tea). The folded circle embellishments were created with circle punches.  The bling is from my stash. The image has been coloured with Derwent Pencils and a Blender Pencil.   The design papers are amongst other from FabScraps, The sentiment comes with the image.

   


We are extremely pleased to announce that Linda W. is our GDT for the September challenge. Linda's work is beautiful and her ability to colour is amazing.  
The sponsors and prizes for this challenge are:

  • A prize package of a $7 gift certificate to the Pickled Potpourri Designs store (good for any digital product), from our guest sponsors this month, for the post or project that the DT deems most inspiring of the bunch.
  • Three digital images from Ike's Art for a person chosen in a random draw based on all entrants.
  • One digital image from Creative Bug Digital Stamps for each person chosen as a DT Delight.
There will also  be:
  • One digital designer paper (made to order in a few different ways) from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles for one lucky voter who leaves a comment.
  • One digital sentiment for every single person who enters the challenge.

Hope you will play along this month, so come on link your DETERMINATION creations to Path of Positivity Challenge No.18. Can't wait to see your creations.

    9. Beautiful, and a great sentiment. This was added to our new challenge PUNS, instead of last week's Metal Punches or Dies. Last week's challenge is closed, so I'm going to remove this from the PUN entries, but did want to say, beautiful box. ~Janis, owner PDE Linky Party
