In the Mood for Love
Romance Cards Contest 2012
OFFICIAL CONTEST RULES
We are absolutely excited to launch our first ever Valentine Contest and we can hardly wait to see what you’ve created! Before you complete our easy contest form, please take the time to read our Official Contest Rules..
In the Mood for Love: Romance Cards Contest 2012 (the “Contest”) is designed to encourage card-makers (that’s you!) to inspire fellow arts and crafts enthusiasts to get into the art of card-making by sharing ideas, tips, photos and tutorials of homemade love and romance cards.
We want to see what you've created -- your own Valentine card ideas! Please submit only photos of projects that belong to you. If you upload copyrighted images or try to pass off another artist's work as your own, your entry will be removed and you may be banned from entering our future contests.
If you are 18+ years of age then you are absolutely eligible to join! All entries must be in by March 1, 2012 at 11:59:59 PM Pacific Time (PT). You can submit as many entries as you like!
All participants must provide a valid email address, which will be used to contact them in the event of winning a prize. Email addresses submitted to Lets-Make-Greeting-Cards.com will not be shared, sold, or disclosed to third parties, except as required by law.
If you do not provide an email address, we may still add your contribution to the site but it will not be an eligible entry to the contest since we will have no means of contacting you (sorry). So please do make sure you provide an email address.
Contest void where prohibited by law. All federal, state, and local laws and regulations apply.
