COURAGE {POP Challenge 19 - Courage}

This month our theme for Challenge #19 at Path of Positivity is 

COURAGE

I used the following beautiful image from Sparkle N Sprinkle - just click on the name of the image below to take you directly to Sparkle N Sprinkle's Online Shop (thank you for the privilege to use this beautiful image) :



The image and flower embellishments (which is part of this set) has been coloured with Copics and dry chalks. The brads and design papers are from my stash. The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC} and can be purchased here.



   



We are extremely pleased to announce that Julie O. is our GDT for the October challenge. Julie is also on DigiStamps4Joy's design team with me.  Do yourself a favour and hop over to her blog to see her beautiful creative work.

Sparkle N Sprinkle is the sole sponsor for this POP challenge: They are offering up three prizes for this challenge, which will be:

Three digital images for the post or project that the DT deems most inspiring of the bunch.
Three digital images for a person chosen in a random draw based on all entrants.
Three digital images for a project or post that best displays the concept of courage in a creation meant for a breast cancer survivor (since it is breast cancer awareness month).

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 COURAGE creations to Path of Positivity Challenge No.19. Can't wait to see your creations.

    52. Oh my gosh! I am sitting here crying my eyes out. You know it is like sometimes you need to receive a message from God or the universe to just keep going. I have been so sick; I woke up this morning and thought "I just can't do it another day" and then I came here and read the sentiment on your card. Thank you my friend. Your card is beautiful and so are you!
