This time the challenge is...PINK PLUS ONE!!

Hi Pinkies

Today our challenge is as the title shows.... 'Pink Plus One' - and we would like you to use plenty of Pink (as always).......  PLUS one other colour of your choice!

Now I have to admit that both Sylvia and I scratched our heads over this one.....  so we've decided to relax the rules slightly and allow neutral shades such as white, cream or kraft for the base card.....  and also for shading around an image.   And yes.... we'd also call skin tones relatively neutral too!!

Here's what we came up with:

and from our current Guest Designer Becky

More details of all our creations can be found on our blogs... click on our names above each card.

We've tried to come up with very different types and styles....  but it has been quite difficult to stick to just Pink Plus One......  so don't forget, although we're relaxing slightly on this one......  we'd still like you to try to stick to the guidelines above.  Sadly, we've been receiving entries in previous challenges that haven't adhered to our guidelines... and as our Pinkies know, we're ALL ABOUT PINK here at Pink Palace.....  so the more pink you can use, the better!!  The MAJORITY of your card should be PINK -  plus ONE other colour this time.  Now that's the serious bit over - let's make it fun!!

We'd like to say a massive thank you to Becky for being our Guest Designer for the past two challenges - her creations are absolutely stunning.....  and her water colouring is just perfect.  Please pop over to her blog HERE to see more of her fantastic work.

OK girls........  get out your pink pens........ PLUS one other colour.....  and let's see what you come up with!!  We really look forward to seeing your entries.... and hope we haven't put you off with this one...  so Pinkies everywhere.....  let's see you rise to the challenge!! hehe!

Big hugs from the Pinkie Palace
Christine and Sylvia

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE read the Challenge requirements before you enter - we do not enjoy being the "bad guys" and having to leave negative comments - this is supposed to be fun for you, and for us.   Thank you so much.
