August Colour Challenge ...

Hello and welcome to our August Colour Challenge. This month we want to see what you create using the colours pink, lilac, blue, green and tangerine

We have a gorgeous inspiration photograph to help kick start your creativity and of course some fabulous creations from our Design Team

Our lovely friends from Lili Of The Valley are once again giving our winner a £10 voucher to spend in their online store - there is a new launch of Christmas stamps coming out this week so perfect timing for someone to win a voucher to spend!

Ribbon Girl are also giving our winner a beautiful yellow ribbon kit


Our rules are very simple - create a new project using the challenge colours, blog about it mentioning this challenge then come back and link us to your project using the InLinkz button at the bottom of this post. Please be fair to the other entrants and don't backlink to old projects, this is meant to be fun for everyone!

Our Design Team have made some gorgeous projects (all the lovely products they have used can be found in the Ribbon Girl online store) and they have been joined by a new Guest Designer - we are so pleased to welcome the very talented Mel Fletcher as our guest designer for the August colour challenge - I'm sure most of you will already know Mel and this is her gorgeous card:
