Very quick post today :)

I made it to round 3 of the Embellish This Challenge Competition at Scrap N Craft With T and was so loving the challenge! That was until Mojo did a runner on me....lol.
I really struggled to get this done and was so disappointed because I LOVED the challenge.
Anyways, here are the details of the Round 3 challenge:

EMBELLISH IT..... AND BLING IT!

My Challenge for you this week, goes hand in hand with a big event on the Australian Calendar...the Melbourne Cup. It's always a big event that gets the whole nation involved. Seeing there's always a 1st, 2nd and 3rd...my challenge is all about 3's! So, the first part of your challenge is to use the Melbourne Cup logo as your inspiration and create a layout using the colours of teal, hot pink, black and white. Bright and very funky!! NOTE: You can use tiny hints of other colours but the main focus is on this colour scheme.


The second part of the Challenge is to create an interesting background, and it must have 3 elements to it. For example, my background has painting, sewing and a weaved paper background. You can do whatever you like here, but it MUST have 3 parts to it!!

As you know, the Races are all about fashion, feathers and bling, so guess what the third part of the challenge is about??
You MUST use: Fabric, Feathers and Bling on your layout somewhere.

As an BONUS part of this challenge and sticking with the theme for our "Embellish This" competition...You MUST create a handmade embellishment out of fabric.
It can be anything at all. There are plenty of tutorials on the web, showing you how to make various embellishments. Let your mind run wild...I can't wait to see what you create!! Good luck everyone!

And here was my take on the challenge.
