Colour challenge #7 ...

Before we get onto the colour challenge we have some extra special news to share.

We have not one but two new designers joining our Design Team today!  We are thrilled to announce that Dawny P and Bev Rochester have joined our team. Dawny is our current guest designer and we are so excited that she agreed to join the team permanently.  Bev is a past guest designer, long standing customer and good friend to the Ribbon Girl.  We have no idea how we've managed to keep this news secret all week - we've been wanting to shout it from the roof tops and would like to give both Dawny and Bev a great big Ribbon Girl welcome, we are so excited to have you girls :)

So, onto the April colour challenge. This month the challenge is to create a project within the colour theme of red, white and blue

We are once again being generously sponsored by the girls at Lili Of The Valley who have given a £10 voucher to spend in the LOTV online shop. LOTV released their new clear additions range this week so there is plenty to tempt you in the shop.

And of course we have a Ribbon Girl prize too

Please leave a direct link to your project using the inlinkz button at the bottom of the post. Your project should follow the colour theme of red, white and blue. It doesn't have to include ribbons but of course that would be lovely - even nicer if it included Ribbon Girl ribbons but of course that is not essential :) Please create a new project and don't link to older projects, the challenge will run until midnight (UK time) May 1st

The Ribbon Girl Design Team have created some beautiful projects to inspire you
