Colour Challenge #8

Hello, here we are with another fabulous colour challenge, another fabulous prize and another set of fabulous projects from our design team!  This month the colours for the challenge were chosen by Claudia who took inspiration from the pretty pinks and lilacs in the Summer Day wool felt bundles that we sell in the Ribbon Girl shop

We have a lovely prize of ribbons, lace, felt and embellishments from the Ribbon Girl as well as a £10 voucher from our regular sponsors Lili Of The Valley

Lili Of The Valley released a set of gorgeous boy themed stamps just this week so whoever wins the prizes will be spoilt for choice over what to buy from the store!!

Our regular 'rules' apply to the challenge - create a new project using the colours of pink and lilac (please don't use an older project) mention this challenge in your blog post and add a direct link to the InLinkz tool at the bottom of this post. You don't have to use ribbons on your project but it would be nice if you did and of course even nicer if you used products from the Ribbon Girl but certainly not essential. The challenge will run for two weeks and we will select a winner at random after the challenge closes on Sunday May 29th at 9:00 PM (UK time) who will recieve both the Ribbon Girl and LOTV prizes

Our design team have created some beautiful projects to inspire you and we are very pleased to welcome the mega talented Jacqui Dennis as our Guest Designer for May
