Happy Tuesday again! This is my second post for today so be sure to scroll down for more eye candy.

I am hosting my first Pink Cat Studio Design Team Challenge over at the Pink Cat Group on Paper Craft Planet. Here are the instructions:

LOVE My Pink Cat Stamps – DT Challenge

Challenge Description:
Since Valentine's Day is coming up fast, I have a LOVE themed Challenge for you! But this isn't any old love themed challenge, this is a special one! My challenge for you is to create a card or project with at least four elements (you can have more if you would like), but four of your elements have to spell LOVE. For example, you can use Layers, Ovals, Violet, and Embellishments; see spells love. Or you could use Lily, Owls, Very pretty sequins and Emerald brads. Spells love. The possibilities are endless and yes, V can stand for very! Just remember that four of your elements must spell LOVE. Have Fun, can't wait to see what you come up with!
Date the challenge ends:

Tuesday February 10th, 5 pm EST


A Pink Cat Studio stamp must be used as the main stamp on the card or project. It is okay to use stamps from other companies as well. Your entry can be a card or any type of 3D project.To be eligible for the prize you must upload your card before the deadline to your PaperCraftPlanet gallery and include the tag PCSDTC1.

On February 11th, a winner will be chosen by a random draw from all of the challenge participants. The winner will receive a grab bag of Pink Cat Studio stamps. The winner will be announced in the PCP challenge discussion thread and on the Pink Cat Studio blog. Some cards from the challenge will be displayed on the PCS blog and all entries will go into the PCP gallery.

Here is my card for a little inspiration.

I spelled LOVE on my card with Layers/Lily, Orange, Violet, Embellishments. I started this card off by stamping Lily and Billy on the bicycle from the new Lily and Billy Sweethearts by Pink Cat Studio on white card stock and colored Lily in with my markers. I then cut her out and attached two pieces of black ribbon. To create the balloon I made a template with a folded over piece of scrap paper, traced it onto purple and orange DP, cut my orange DP into three strips and adhered it to the purple DP. I added some black marker for outlining and attached the two ribbons to the balloon. I popped her off the sky background I created with my mulitliner pen and copics. Next, I layered on orange and violet card stock along with some Basic Grey card stock and popped off the sentiment I stamped and cut out using my labels nesties. I finished my card by adding three purple brads to the top corner.

I hope you like my creation and are inspired to play along. I can't wait to see what you create!
