Challenge 19

Well here we are at our last challenge of the year BUT it will run till the new year just in case your at a loose end .

Neets choice a recipe ... Blue, Female image, Ribbon and some sparkle and you choose what you make

As a follower you can choose whether or not you choose to do the theme, but as a team member it's the challenge of doing a theme that other wise you might run and hide from that I enjoy so this was my third try, I got the blue and the female image but when it can to the ribbon and sparkle I was flumuck to make it work, so like eating veg I started with what scared me most ...... the ribbon so rummaged through  the box and found a piece I didn't even know I had. next came the image just right to go with the ribbon, humm back ground gotta be sorta retro. I decided to go with paint and blended the colours , cool peri, cloudy blue, sail boat blue and denim then stamped in white and pink to tie it in with the ribbon and the skirt and I don't  think it's turned out to bad well it made the OH laugh though he could or wouldn't say why MEN !

 
Oh and where's the sparkle I here you ask will it's the little dots on the skirt :)
Thanks for popping by and look forward to seeing how you will use the recipe
 
Feeling a bit chuffed this week as I was lucky enough to win the Die cut challenge at the Craftroom so will share with you when it arrives :)

Your background is gorgeous Von and I think you've done great justice to the theme recipe! I'm rather liking that lady image. I think it's a great theme idea but haven't got a clue what I will do but something hopefully will come to mind!
Have a wonderful weekend and hope you are well.
