I won the challenge of the past week from the European Street Team on Etsy: Hurrah ! Thanks Amanda for hosting this "Pastel Color" challenge.
The coming week I am the challenge queen; and I choose for: "TRADITIONAL COSTUME". Let your entry be inspired by the traditional costumes of the country where you were born, or where you live, or of a country that you indentify with. It does not need to be the whole costume, a bit of ornamentation or jewelry will be fine as inspiration source too !
The challenge ends on Monday 29 of June around 22:00. Can't wait to see your entries !
