July Card Challenge ...

Before we begin our new challenge we have exciting news ... we are thrilled to welcome a new Ribbon Girl to our Design Team - the very talented Elaine Livesey. Elaine has been a regular customer at The Ribbon Girl as well as being a lovely friend and a recent guest for our challenges and we are very happy that she is joining our team permanently. Pop over to her blog as she has a giveaway at the moment and you could win a £50 voucher to spend at The Ribbon Girl online store as well as having a nosey at her lovely new craftroom ;)
So, onto the new challenge and this week it's a card challenge - we would like to see your Summer themed cards. The Design Team, plus this weeks lovely guest Christine Dark have created some beautiful cards to inspire you. Is summer all about weddings in your family or do you spend the summer beside the sea or in your flower filled garden? Whatever Summer means to you we would love to see your cards, remember that all the products listed after the projects can be found in The Ribbon Girl online store and there are more details about each project on the Design Team's individual blogs.

As usual our card Challenge is sponsored by our lovely friends at Lili Of The Valley and The Ribbon Girl

This challenge will run for 1 week and closes at 9PM UK time on Saturday 12th July. Our usual rules apply - create a new card that follows the theme - SUMMER (please no backlinking to old projects), blog about it mentioning this challenge then leave a link using the InLinkz button at the bottom of this post. The prize will be redrawn if the winner does not claim it after 1 week of the winner being identified on this blog
