Pink Cat Studio - Jodi's Geometry Challenge

Hey Friends! Well, I'm using Firefox right now because I can't get on my blog or other blogger's site with Internet Explorer. Are you having the same problem? If you are, you may want to download Firefox and use it temporarily.

Well, we have another challenge!!! This one is for Pink Cat Studio! Whoohoo! Unfortunately, I sort of made a mistake. I was suppose to have created a card with 3 geometric shape. . .a rectangle (card base), square, and a circle and using 2 different designer paper. It helps to read the instructions carefully! LOL! Anyway. . .I'll make another card but in the mean time, here is the challenge: ****update**** I added the square sentiment and removed the tag sentiment so now the card you see on my blog has been updated with all the requirements of the challenge. LOL!

This month, DT member Jodi will be hosting our card making challenge.

The challenge is to create a card using basic geometric shapes. Your card must be rectangular in shape and you must use 2 different patterned papers, one cut in the shape of a circle and the other in the shape of a square. So we have a rectangle, a circle and a square. You must also use a Pink Cat Studio stamp as the main image for the card. You can use stamps from other companies as well. So these are the minimum requirements for the card. You can add more shapes and papers as well as any embellishments you would like, so the possibilities are endless.

Date the challenge ends: Sunday May 31st, 5 pm EST


A Pink Cat Studio stamp must be used as the main stamp on the card. It is okay to use stamps from other companies as well. To be eligible for the prize you must leave a comment in this post. In your comment provide a link to your card. Your card can either be displayed on your blog or in an online gallery. You may enter only 1 project for this challenge.


This contest will be judged by the design team. Since this is Jodi’s challenge, she will select her 3 favorite cards and then the DT will vote for a winner. On June 1st, the winner will be announced on the PCS blog. The winner will receive a grab bag of Pink Cat Studio stamps. Some cards from the challenge may be displayed on the PCS blog.

Just a little info on my card. I colored Lily from the Lily at the Beach stamp set. I added a bit of SU Crystal Effects to the turtle and Lily's flower.

That's about it!!

Hope y'all have a beautiful day.

YAH! I can comment now! Ü Very cute!

I read on another blog that the blogs that have the follower thingy are the ones that are having problems. She said if you take it off you don't lose your followers, they will still get updates.

A friend recommended me to try Firefox several yrs. ago. I have been hooked on it every since. I hope you like it as well.
Have a great holiday weekend:)
