  1. hi! Would love to participate.. had couple of questions..
    (1) the colors are clearly mentioned, but the theme- does this refer to - icecreams , sunny days, beach theme , stripes ? can any one of these be on our card or all of them.? Also should we use all the colored?
    (2) how many card photographs dhould we send you
    (3) along with blog link and our profile details, anything else that we need to provide?
    please help clarify

  2. Hi Salma,
    The ideas mentioned are just that, ideas! They are meant to be a starting point for your creativity not necessarily followed to the letter. Creating a card to the overall theme though, is a requirement. So, for example, we don't want to see steampunk themes, or floral themes for this art call :)
    We only need to see the one picture.
    If your card is selected, we'll contact you for all the details we need!
    Thanks Salma, can't wait to see your submission :)

  3. Cool colours! Could you also please clarify the guidelines of the Ready, Set, Stamp category. This is supposed to be a quick-to-make card, right? But was it 10 or 20 minutes?
