My Besties UK Challenge - Anything Goes & Poinsettia

Good morning and welcome back to my blog ... how the weeks are flying by ....

Today over at Besties UK we have a new challenge 

Anything Goes (A) & Poinsettia (B)

You can enter the challenge here 'My Besties UK' we have some fab digis as prizes the rules are up to 3 entries with a Bestie Image and one without so you can enter up to 4 times ....  

You can enter an ANYTHING GOES project or a  project with poinsettia ... 

This is any project that includes something with 
poinsettia  .... .... its getting near to Christmas so we are all very busy just now and you can find these flowers in abundance...

This is my design team card for the challenge, I loved this image by Sherri so pretty and I wanted to use reds with this lovely tartan ribbon .. This image can be purchased from the store here 

I have used some red coredinations, with some Magnolia paper from my stash, the lovely ribbon was from Woodware, the dies are from the new spellbinders range Decorative elements labels 39 and the matching labels 39.

It was coloured with copics, r24, 27, 29 for her coat and boots, yg63, 67 for the greens and e50, 51, 53 for her skirt, the usual e000, 00, 11, 21, 04 and r 20 for her skin.

Kept this one clean and simple for a change, love the poinsettia on her hat and boots.

I hope I have inspired you to take part in our challenge .... thanks for stopping by today to visit
