A Ribbon Challenge ...

Hello, I'm back with a new challenge today to end the Birthday celebrations for the Ribbon Girl.  The challenge is very simple:

Create a new project that features ribbon

We would love to see all kinds of projects - cards, papercrafts, cakes, crochet, knitting and fabric crafts etc

Use the inlinkz button at the bottom of this post to link us up to your creation and someone will be selected at random to win this gorgeous and very sparkly! prize from the Ribbon Girl

Zva crystal flourish
Rhinestone swirl set
Diamante ribbon slides
3 packets of sparkly buttons
Pearl filigree pins
Silver flat cord

Please create a new project - no backlinking, mention this challenge in your blog post and of course there is no need to use ribbon from The Ribbon Girl but it would be lovely if you do :)  The challenge will run for 2 weeks and will end on the evening of Saturday 27th August (UK time)

Our fabulous Design Team are having a summer holiday at the moment so for our inspiration I have chosen some of my favourite project from them from over the last year.


Have fun, we're looking forward to seeing what you create

Mary and Andrea xx
