Blue and brown colour challenge at MPS

Hi there, its time for a new challenge at Michelle Perkett Studio and this week we have a colour challenge for you, we want to see your creations using blue and brown. This is one of my favourite colour combos and I thought Michelle's gorgeous 'Party Dress' image would be perfect! You can find it here in Michelle's Etsy Store.

The image is coloured with promarkers and I added clear micro beads to the bottom ot look like layers of petticoats and distressed the edges with vintage photo distress ink.
The gorgeous dps are all from Ella Blue by GCD and again distressed with a little distress ink and a strip punched with a ms punch for the border.
The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons, flowers from my stash (inked with a little distress ink) and the brads for the flower centres are also from my stash

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Craft us Crazy: Cupcake or Celebration
Digi Doodle Shops Best: anything goes
Fairy Fun Fridays: Its my party

Meljens Designs: Show us your dots
One stop craft challenge: Diamonds are a girls best friend
