Everyone was entered into the prize draw though if your card was eligible.

Ladies please take your Top 3 badge from the sidebar on the right, thanks so much to everyone who entered, Mary and Andrea xx
Welcome to the new Colour Challenge here at the Ribbon Girl blog, the home of the Ribbon Girl Design Team

This month we want to see your fabulous creations using this glorious colour palette
As usual we have two prizes for the winner of our challenge:
  A Lilac Mini Makes Kit from The Ribbon Girl

and a £10 voucher from the very generous lovely ladies at Lili of the Valley

Our rules are very simple - create a new project (does not have to be a card, we would love to see all of your lovely handcrafted projects) following the colour theme, blog about it mentioning this challenge then use the InLinkz button at the bottom of this post to link to your project. Please don't back link to old projects. The challenge will close on Saturday December 1st at 9PM (UK time)
Our talented Design Team have created some stunning projects to inspire you and this month we have been joined by a new Design Team Member. Mary and Andrea are thrilled to announce our newest Ribbon Girl - Anne Richardson.
