Your Next Stamp DT Call and couple of Challenges

Hi Peeps,

YNS Challenge blog is having a DT call. I know its been almost a month now and all you beautiful crafter have already grabbed the chance. So, heres my part for aiming the target..lolzz
Ok, so over to the YNS Design Team Call - have a look at their blog. Some briefs are as below!

This is an open design team call, so anyone of any age from anywhere can apply! The new DT term will run for 6 months from September 1st 2010 through February 28th 2011. You must have a well-maintained blog on which you would be willing to share your YNS creations each week, be able to take good quality digital photographs of your work, and possess great coloring skills (full DT requirements are listed below).
This call will remain open from today (July 1st 2010) through midnight EST on July 31st 2010. New members will be contacted via email within a week of the DT call ending and announced on the Your Next Stamp blog thereafter.
Design Team perks include ... a very generous discount on YNS stamps AND products sold in the YNS store, FREE initial YNS stamp package, FREE new stamps for each new release, your own gallery on the YNS website....and guaranteed FUN!

Wow, what a fun, it would be... So, for trying a luck in this fun, I am sending my app (with fingers crossed) with these three cards.

Now, onto the deets of my new creation, the one I also sent to the YNS DT call.

I really enjoyed working on this card due to several reasons, I guess. First, I tried paper piercing for the first time and it turned out real well :D. Second, I love the colors - anything with the hues of purple/mauve, I just love playing with them :D. Thirdly, I get to use my new stamp set & the ribbon :D. And lastly - it's a CAS, a quickie ;).
Heres another shot of my card:
And one more:

I am entering in the following challenges with this card:
ABC Design - paper piercing
CPS#177 - sketch
CAS-tastic - bling it up (there was some problem in the site as new post has not uploaded, hope I'd be eligible to add this card later)
Stampin' for the Weekend - challenge#43 'Recipe - 3 DP, 2 flowers, 1 ribbon & extra added charm or gems' 
Digi Doodle Shop's Best - challenge#18 'punch or cut me' - I used paper piercing
Simon Says Stamp - we are all going dotty

Recipe of this card:
Paper - Corrugated Cardstock in purple from 'Potpourri'. Blue cardstock from my stash (stamped the background), DP from 'Martha Stewart'.
Stamps - Clear stamp of flowers from the set of Mindy's Flowers by Stampology, Rubber stamp for sentiment from Studio'g'
Inks - Coal from Martha Stewart, blue and fuchsia from petal point
Others - ribbon from Offray, some blings

Thanks for stopping by. With fingers (& everything that can be crossed) sending this to YNS.
