Challenge #2 2022: Anything Flies using only PINK AND BLACK

Welcome to Paper Dragonfly Creative Challenges, I’m so happy you’re here!
Paper Dragonfly is my new monthly challenge blog with a new creative challenge posted on the first Friday of every month. 

See if you won our January Challenge here Challenge #1 Winter Dragonfly!

CHALLENGE #2 - ANYTHING FLIES using only PINK AND BLACK
Today is the start of our February Challenge and this month is color themed combined with Anything Flies aka Anything Goes, see what I did there LOL!  I challenge you to create anything you want with any theme only using the colors Pink and Black.  Additional colors included in patterned papers like a background is ok as long as the main color is either pink or black and imagery is your choice.  I’ve made some small changes to the Challenge info to clarify a few things better so please read all the info in this post.

DRAGONFLY AWARD - OPTIONAL CHALLENGE TWIST
Every challenge will also have a bonus optional twist.  I challenge you to include a dragonfly in some way or form regardless of the current theme.  Those who choose to rise to the Dragonfly Twist challenge in the most unique way wins our Dragonfly Award badge.  Please put “DA” after your name in your entry description to indicate you’ve entered the challenge twist and make sure to explain how you’ve incorporated a dragonfly in your blog post.

Enter your Pink and Black projects in the Inlinkz link-up following the challenge rules provided below by Feb 25.  


I’m now pleased to introduce you to the first members of Paper Dragonfly’s Creative Design Team!  Join me in welcoming Diane and Val to our Creative Design Team and Helen to our official Guest Design Team!  You’ll be seeing inspirational projects by Diane and Val each month and Helen every second month starting now with these gorgeous Pink and Black projects!
