  1. Do you accept cards/stamps/product made with any company? Or is it limited to certain companies' product?

  2. Is there a reward for winning the challenge?

  3. What is the keyword for online galleries?

    1. CC and then the number of the challenge. For example: CC1

  4. Will the keyword CC get confused with color challenge cards on splitcoaststampers? I know they are almost up to maybe it won't matter. ;-)
    Getting ready to blog about the current challenge!

    1. I guess you could use the words cardconcept and the number? Thanks, Kim!

  5. I just posted my card and it came up very fuzzy while the photo in my gallery is clear. Is there a way that I can delete that and try again? Maybe I pushed the "Done" button too soon? Thanks for any help....

  6. Can I link to my SCS gallery instead of a blog? I'm still working on my blog...

  7. Hello: I was just wondering.....currently, there are 2 other color challenges with the same colors as The Card Concept, will it be ok for me to participate in all 3?
    Thank you for any information.

    Maria Rodriguez.

  8. Can I enter with a card linked on Instagram rather than on a blog?

  9. I not sure what happened, but I apologize for not getting the picture entered properly. This is concerning tcc148. Thank you!

  10. Thanks _chevron2- for some reason IG has issues with linking a photo. I tried to save your photo so I could link for you (or at least allow our DT to see your card in the gallery) but I could not figure out how to save it from IG either. If you would be willing to send us a message on our Card Concept FB page with the photo, I could possibly upload it for you. Thanks again for playing along with us and we hope you can join us again soon!
