Motivation to Keep Going and don't Quit

Had some time to play, color, and practice with my distress inks along with joining  the Simon Says Stamps Wed challenge with Anything Goes and incorporate Kathy's 30 day coloring challenge over at The Daily Marker.  
Here is my card:
I just love this stamp set called: Work Out especially with this adorable yoga girl and you know I love stitches so once again, used my Blueprints 13 to cut out my base. Than, I used the Stitched Circles by Simon Says Stamps to create stitching inside and out of the circle. 

I used my distress inks (Broken China, Spun Sugar, Scattered Straw) to create the background and had fun blending the colors together along with practicing. To get the green color below, I added the scattered straw color over the broken china color and got this really pretty green, since I was thinking grass for her to sit on

For final touches, I added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins and added some foam mount under the yoga girl. Added the sentiment using my Misti and Hero Arts black ink to get a nice black look.
