July - Colours

Hello, it's Alison here bringing your our new challenge. I think you'll have lots of fun with it. We'd like to see Rainbow colours.


What is more colourful than Christmas? Lights, trees, presents all wrapped up, not to mention food - there is so much choice. 
We'd like to see at least 5 colours but of course you can go all out and use the rainbow if you'd like to. 
Have a look at what the design team were inspired to make. Do pay them a visit and leave a comment to show you've been, I'm sure they would appreciate it. 







Just a reminder that this challenge has a slightly longer deadline. You have until midnight (BST) Friday 4th August, that's 7.00pm EDT, to play along! Have fun!
