Challenge 72 - Recipe (blue, green or red)

Our last Challenge had really wonderful projects from everyone but unfortunately some of them will not be eligible for the Winner prize as they didn't follow the rules.  The Winner and Top 3 will be announced later so become a follower and never miss a post.

Here is a little about our Sponsor

Hello I am Mi Ran artist and owner of Artbymiran, I was born in Seoul, South Korea. I grew up with Korean and Japanese Manga. In my childhood, I loved drawing and making my own little stories. I moved to Canada in my late 20s, where I reside with my husband.

I have worked on a variety of publications, ranging from children's to contemporary adult genres. I have contributed as an artist and colorist. I also worked as a graphic artist and layout designer for non-comic publications. For several years I was able to share my passion through teaching art to elementary school aged children. These experiences have influenced my recent artwork.

I am excited to have been kindly received into the community of digi stampers and crafters.
I love to share my art. I love thinking of new images, and it’s so fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art.

My designer’s creations can be seen on my blog http://artbymiran.blogspot.com/

The direct link to our shop is :  http://www.etsy.com/shop/artbymiran 

The prize is 3 images from the store.

Theme

Choose one of the columns and use all the elements in it.
‘B’ Option
‘G’ Option
‘R’ Option
Bling

Butterfly
Glitter
