ANYTHING GOES!
(in pink of course...)

Sooooo... we're looking forward to seeing what you make - all you have to do is MAKE SURE that you use MORE PINK ON YOUR CREATION THAN ANY OTHER COLOUR (with the exception of white and neutrals of course), otherwise your entry may not be considered.

Here's what the Pink Ladies have come up with to inspire...

Soooooooo.......  you can use anything that you think is from FANTASY-LAND - it could be a fairy - or a mermaid... or a unicorn.... they're just some ideas, we're sure you'll come up with lots more!  But don't forget our number one rule though, that you use MORE PINK ON YOUR CREATION THAN ANY OTHER COLOUR, (with the exception of white and neutrals of course), otherwise your entry may not be considered.

Here's what the Pink Ladies have come up with to inspire....

And now, a little change!! After much discussion at the Palace, we've decided to make our challenge every FOUR weeks in future, rather than every TWO - it gives you lovely Pinkies more time to enter (we're happy with up to three entries per entrant), and it gives us Pink Ladies more time to sit with our feet up sipping pink bubbly and eating pink cakes to CREATE here at The Pink Palace!  So this time, you have until 16th August to enter!!

So let's see what PINK Fantasy creations you can come up with!
