May Card Challenge ...

Welcome to another challenge here at The Ribbon Girl and for our Card Challenge this month we were inspired by the big news of this weekend - the birth of our new Princess - and the challenge is to create a Mother/Female themed card

As usual we are sponsored by The Ribbon Girl and Lili Of The Valley with two vouchers for our winner to spend in their shops


The Design Team have created some beautiful cards to inspire you and have been joined by the lovely Kat Waskett who is our guest for this challenge.  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.

This challenge will run for 1 week and closes at 9PM UK time on Saturday 9th May.  Our usual rules apply - create a new card that follows the theme -MOTHER/FEMALE (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
