Challenge #104 - FLOWER POWER

Hi There Lovely Pinkies...

How're you all doing?  Well I hope - and enjoying the start of Autumn/Fall?  Even though it's the season of brown and golds, and crunchy/crisp fallen leaves, we're still thinking of summer.. so our challenge theme is:

FLOWER POWER
(in pink of course)

We'd love you to make something to show us using FLOWERS in some shape or form - either on your image or as an embellishment - or any other way you can think!  But don't forget our number one rule - that you need to use MORE PINK THAN ANY OTHER COLOUR (with the exception of whites and neutrals of course), otherwise your entry may not be considered.

Rizzo (aka Christine)



And if your name is chosen at random from our Perfect Pinkies - you could win seven, yes SEVEN images of your choice from our very generous sponsor - Bugaboo Stamps!  You really will be spoiled for choice on their website - as you can see, most of the DT have used Bugaboo images this time - they have such a variety of styles.

*****

We're back up to full strength here at the Pink Palace... it's so lovely to have all of the pink chairs filled - we put our feet up on the pink pouffes and all enjoy a nice glass of pink bubbles while we catch up with each other..

So get out your pink pens, papers and sparkle, and let's see what you can come up with for our FLOWER POWER challenge....
