Love Cycle

Our challenge to you this week at Phindy's Friday Challenge Blog is to create a card using the photo below as your inspiration. While it does lend itself to a valentine card, you can make something entirely different if that is how the photo inspires you.

You don't have to use a Phindy image in your project but if you do, please follow the instructions on the challenge blog sidebar and enter your card twice. If you don't have any Phindy images, run right over to the store and pick a few up. There are lots of great images and if you want to make a valentine card, there are many newly released images that would be perfect.

We will choose one random winner who will receive a $5 gift certificate to Phindy's store. The Design Team will choose one project as Card of the Week. The creator will also receive a $5 gift certificate to Phindy's store and will be in the running for a monthly Guest Designer spot.

The Design Team has made some wonderful cards for your inspiration this week so check out their blogs for the details.  This week we are joined by a Guest Designer, Katja, so make sure you visit her too.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Cooking it up with Katie - Hearts, Emboss, Punch
