Never Never Never Give Up

I am popping in to share a quick card.  I have not been posting too much this week as our household has been hit with a virus - and it has wiped us out for a few days! 
But thankfully we have all picked up a bit today, so while the rest of the family are watching a movie. I thought I would 'sneak in' a post.  One of the great things about having my desk in the living area is I still get to be with everyone.  It is a standing joke that I never see a movie now, I just get to hear it! LOL! The sacrifices we make....
I have used one of my favourite Our Daily Bread Designs stamp sets for this card - Never Give Up. 
I have stamped the image and sentiment in Tsukineko Versafine - Vintage Sepia and cut them out using Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Eight and layered onto A-2 Fancy Postage Stamps Nestabilities® .  My Die are cut using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® .
My bling is from Want2Scrap.  I always love the way it finishes off a project - I forget what it is like to create something without it!
This card is for the following challenges:
Creative Moments - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
