November Anything Goes Card Challenge ...

edited to add:  sorry for the delay in announcing the winner of the October Colour Challenge, it was No 27 chosen by and that is CraftyNatalie - please email me Natalie so I can arrange your prizes

It's November, the clocks have changed and we're introducing our new format for the blog challenges. We've switched them up a bit to make them more accessible to more crafters and you now have 2 weeks to complete the challenge! We'll only be having 2 challenges each month and both challenges will run for 2 weeks. Our fabulous Design Team have switched round too and they'll be bringing you inspiration for our 'ANYTHING GOES CARD CHALLENGE' and our 'ANY IMAGE CHALLENGE'

So, today we're introducing this months ANYTHING GOES CARD CHALLENGE
Gina, Gretha, Jane, Nat, Sharon and Teresa from our Design Team have made some beautiful cards to inspire you and we have two prizes which will be drawn randomly from all the entrants:

1st prize is a £10 voucher towards a spending spree in The Ribbon Girl online store

2nd prize is a stamp of your choice from LOTV - and you'll love their new range of stamps coming out soon ;) ;)

Could we ask a huge favour please?  Could you help to make our job at leaving comments easier by turning off comment verification

This challenge will run for TWO WEEKS, there are really no rules other than you must make a card and it must be a new card, please no back linking to older projects.  Blog about it mentioning this challenge then leave a link using the InLinkz button at the bottom of this post. The prizes will be redrawn if the winners do not claim them after 1 week of the winners being identified on this blog and are not transferable. Remember that all the products listed below each of the Design Team's cards can be found in The Ribbon Girl's online store
