HAPPY BIRTHDAY {POP Challenge 26 Perseverance}

This month our theme for Challenge #26 at Path of Positivity is 

PERSEVERANCE

By perseverance the snail reached the ark.
Charles Spurgeon

I used the following beautiful image and sentiment set from DeeDees Digis - just click on the name of the image set below to take you directly to DeeDee's  Online Shop (thank you for the privilege to use this beautiful image set) :
Fluttering By

I have used the pre-coloured image in the set. The brads, chipboard flourishes and design papers are from my stash. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC} .
  

Our sponsors and prizes for this challenge are:
  • A $10 gift certificate from Ike's Art, 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 Décosse's Dynamite Doodles for one lucky voter who leaves a comment.
