  14. Question about the RULES - I am bit confused and I want to get this clear in my head so here goes and I hope my questions are not confusing:
    Does the entry ruling mean this:

    If you choose to enter one card without TLC then you are done entering the challenge. One cannot then enter creations using TLC product?

    Or does it mean you can enter all of the TLC creations you want as well as ONE creation without TLC on it?

    Thank you Desire for clearing this up for me. Have a blessed day.
