Colour Challenge 21 ...

Here we are again with a fabulous new colour challenge for the month of July but more of that later. First we need to announce the winners of our July card challenge and also introduce some new Ribbon Girls to the team

Our card challenge for July was to create a 'girlie card' and we had some amazing entries, we tried to get around everyone to leave a comment but due to a family illness and lots of hospital visiting we struggled a little so we apologise to those who we didn't get to leave a comment with - everyone went into the draw to win the prizes though

The winner of the July Card Challenge is:

(please contact us to claim your prizes of £10 voucher for the Ribbon Girl online store and a stamp of your choice from Lili of the Valley)

and our top 3 entries are:

(we hope you'll take the Top 3 badge from our sidebar and add it to your blogs)

We have a new Design Team member joining our team today, we'd like to welcome Liz Armstrong! Liz makes the most beautiful cards and papercrafted items and we were both thrilled when we sent her an email to ask if she might be interested in joining our team and she replied yes! We've loved her creations for a long time and she is going to make a great addition to our team. Many of you will know Liz from her own fabulous business Pink Petticoat as she is the designer behind all those amazing digital downloads, papers, image stamps and trendy sentiments - we're sure you'll agree she is a very talented lady and we're so pleased that she is going to play with the Ribbon Girls!

We've also got another Guest Designer (and regular customer) to introduce you to  - Teresa! We both love Teresa's cards, her colouring and her eye for detail and we are so pleased that she is joining us as this months guest


Our colour challenge this month is inspired by this photograph

As usual we have 2 prizes for one randomly drawn winner from the Ribbon Girl, a gorgeous aqua ribbon kit and from our very generous friends Laila and Lisa at Lili Of The Valley, a £10 voucher to spend in their online store

To enter the challenge simply create a project using the challenge colours, blog about it mentioning us then use the InLinkz button at the bottom of this post to leave a direct link to your project

The challenge will close at 9PM UK time on Saturday 28th July
