Buttons and Bows - Challenge #6

Hi Pinkies

For our new pink challenge, we'd like you to use, as the title suggests...  Buttons and Bows!  Don't forget to use as much pink as possible on your cards or other creations.... the more you use, the happier we are!  We'd like to see more pink than any other colour  so that here at Pink Palace we're awash with all the fabulous shades of this luscious colour!  Come on girls.... rise to the challenge!  We had a massive 110 entries last time...  can we do better that do you think????  We're really thrilled how much people have taken to our challenge... from all over the world... it's so exciting to see and make friends with all these people who LOVE pink!!

Here are the cards that Sylvia and I have come up with using Buttons and Bows..... for more details click on our names to go straight to our blogs.

And  now we'd like to introduce our new Guest Designer - Denise G - here is her beautiful card -

Here are a few words from Denise about herself:
I have always been a crafty sort of girl for as long as I can remember. I started very young when my Grandmother taught me to knit and then went onto crochet, tapestry, embroidery and cross stitch. It was my daughter who got me into papercrafting when she and a friend decided to do a craft fair and were short of cards - so I got roped in and have not looked back since!!!  I feel so honoured  to Guest Design for In The Pink and thank Christine and Sylvia for asking me. I really hope you will join the fun this week and I can't wait to see your beautiful PINK creations.

A big thank you to Denise for agreeing to join our little team for the next two challenges.  You'll find her blog HERE.  Don't forget... next time, this could be you!  We choose a new Guest Designer every two challenges...  this way we can keep new ideas and new ways to use this fabulous colour flowing!

Now......  you don't have to use BOTH buttons AND bows.... we will be more than happy to see EITHER buttons, OR bows.....  but if you fancy using BOTH like we've done...  by all means do so!!  We can't wait to see your entries!!

So...  dig out those pink pens, ribbons, buttons and papers....and get In The Pink zone!!

Big hugs
Christine and Sylvia
