I am just double checking on this due date/time... so this is due at the 'stroke of midnight' on the 5th, meaning we only have 3.5 days (from posting time) to work on this (being due the minute after 11:59 PM on the 4th)? Is that correct?

Nope. You have all of the 5th. I was hoping by using the 24-hr clock it would be clear. You have the full 24 hours of the 5th to work.

Is that better?

Big DUH from me. Yes, Toiny, much better. I'm so glad I double-checked.

Thank you!

when you say "12 unique elements."

do you mean themed elements or would buttons,stitches, etc etc normal essential things be included in the 12?
want to be sure before i start

Any element is fine, whether themed or basic (ie buttons, stitches, flowers).

Unique means one-of-a-kind. In other words: if you have the same bow 3 times, but only recolored, it is not unique. Now, if you have 3 completely different bows, that would equal 3 unique elements.

It can get murky if you have a bow, a button and then a clustered element using that bow & that button. I would recommend staying away from this practice for this round.

Is there a certain amount of colors from the palette we are required to use, or any combination of those provided?

Another question already, not sure if others might find this one useful as well though.

Should we provide credit for any CU items we use, even if they have "no credit required" terms in their TOU for the purpose of the contest?

It is always a nice thing to do, but it is not required.

Good luck ladies! This color pallette looks like a challenge for sure! I can't wait to see what you all come up with and I'm sure you will make the voting very difficult for us!
