Colour Challenge #9 ...

Hi, it's Andrea here with a brand new Ribbon Girl colour challenge. We had an amazing response to last month's colour challenge and this month the colours for the challenge have been chosen by Mary

As usual we have two fantastic prizes for our randomly selected winner from the Ribbon Girl and our lovely friends Lisa and Laila at Lili Of The ValleyLOTV are generously giving a £10 voucher to spend in the LOTV online shop - did you see the new Here Come The Girls stamps this week?

The Ribbon Girl are giving either a pink Ribbon Kit or a cream/white Ribbon Kit

So, our challenge this month is to create a project based on the colours pink and cream. Blog about your project mentioning this challenge then link us up to the blog post by using the inlinkz button at the bottom of this post.  Please play fair and only enter new projects - projects that you blogged about before the challenge started won't be entered into the prize draw. The challenge will run for two weeks until 9pm UK time on Sunday 3rd July

To inspire you and kick start your creativity check out what the Ribbon Girl Design Team have been doing, we are welcoming Riets to our team this month as a Guest Designer

Be inspired by these gorgeous cards (and the fab chick give away)

One lucky reader can have this fab chick made by our very clever teamie Gail for last month's colour challenge - just send us a comment and we'll pick a winner on Wednesday evening, 15th June 2011

We are delighted to show some projects made by our very talented customers and the Ribbon Girl Design Team - all of the embellishments mentioned are available from the Ribbon Girl online store where we strive to offer not only a fast turnround of all orders, but a friendly and personal service to all our customers, no matter how much or how little they wish to purchase
What a gorgeous Teddy Bea card by Bev - the charm, pins, dewdrops, cluny lace and organza ribbon are from The Ribbon Girl

Jane is a regular customer and we love to see how she has used our products - Jane added 38mm wide pretty pink sheer with satin bands to this bearthday card

A very clever way of using ruffled gingham by our customer  Vicky

Dawny P added white 38mm organza spot ribbon and gathered up some of our flat lace to enhance this gorgeous card

This fabulous card featuring a little bird's nest by Mandy is finished with a gorgeous bow made from faux silk in pale blue and some very fine cluny lace

This card from the mega talented Jacqui would make any recipient smile - she added 30mm white cotton ziz zag lace, pale fuschia sheer ribbon and a fabby Zva crystal swirl

Jo has made her own flower by gathering white cluny cotton lace in traditional fan pattern behind a pink button and finished this very pretty card with 30mm white cotton lace, white seam binding and pink button twine

Great sentiment from Nicole - and doesn't that cream flower lace look pretty?
If you have any questions about products in the Ribbon Girl shop or need a tiny sample before you buy, just send us an email and we'll try to send you an answer the same day
