January Challenge Bonanza ...

Happy New Year to all of our challenge readers! The Ribbon Girl Design Team is back with a fabulous full team colour challenge to kick off a new year of fun here on the Ribbon Girl blog and we have news of some new friends who will be joining us.  Please help us to welcome Jane Johnson to our Card Challenge Design Team, Jane is one of our favourite cardmakers, check out her blog for lots of gorgeous projects, we are both thrilled that she accepted our invitation.
We've made some changes to our challenges this year, they will now run for 1 week each to make room for a new Magnolia only challenge and we're welcoming Bev Rochester and Katie Kempton to our Magnolia Only Design Team, these two talented ladies will join some of our existing Ribbon Girls for a Magnolia extravaganza challenge! We are so pleased that Kim Piggott is able to rejoin the Ribbon Girls and Kim will be on the Magnolia Only team - welcome back Kim! Come back next week to join in the fun
So, todays challenge is a colour challenge and judging by the beautiful projects that the Design Team have created it seems that everyone likes creating with Pink and Ivory! We've got a gorgeous inspiration photo to inspire you too
Our prizes will be a £10 voucher from the lovely ladies at Lili of the Valley

plus a £10 voucher towards a spending spree at The Ribbon Girl

Our challenge will run for 1 week until Saturday January 26th (9PM UK time), the rules are simple as always - make a new project (no backlinking), blog about your project mentioning this challenge then add your link using the In Linkz tool at the bottom of this post.  To be included in the draw for the prize you must follow the colour scheme of the challenge
