Embellish it week 3

Well I survived round 2 now this round was a doozy,

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.

My 3 background elements are stamping, flicked rain dauber (made up sparkly paint) and circles was the third.

a close up of the embellishment which was my biggest hurdle to get over in this challenge as I'm no sewer I had to go raid mum's quilting scraps again and after playing around trying different things I settled on a bird and traced the template from some chipboard elements and cut one out from felt as well which is sewn together with the fabric and feathers..

Phew!! see if I can survive another round, they seem to get harder each round..
