Perseverance {Never Give Up!}

It's Monday, and the new work week begins. Today, I had time to make a card, with the Path of Positivity Challenge blog in mind.  The theme this month is 'Perseverance'. 
Do you ever set a goal, and then you don't know when it's time to give up on that dream?  I feel the need to persevere when I set a goal, and work towards it as much as I can -- learning and growing along the way.  This card represents that desire to push on, to persevere, to attempt to accomplish the goal.  Goals can be large or small, but they are satisfying to achieve, no matter what.
This image and sentiment are from Great Impressions Stamps.  They have a DT call right now.  It has been a long-time goal of mine to make this team, so I will apply again.  I will persevere!
I colored this delightful image with Derwent Inktense pencils and a water brush.
Designer Papers are from American Crafts, #Summer, 6x6 pad.  The paper behind the image and sentiment is digital paper from Lisa Decosse, of Decosse's Dynamite Doodles. It is from her textured paper pack.  The sequins are from Close To My Heart.

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
Path of Positivity -- Perseverance 
Lawnscaping Challenge -- watercolors
