St. Valentine's CSS Challenge

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 13, 2014, 8:38 AM
:iconjournalcss: and :iconjournalskin:
are teaming up for a Valentine CSS Challenge, the first of many challenges to come
in the future....

Why?
What prompted this challenge? The lack of activity in both groups and the skinning community in general. We want both groups to be  more active, to gain more publicity, to show we're still alive and not dead as others lately. We plan to do monthly challenges based on specific themes.

:heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:


Introduction
It's  time  to  get  out  the  glitter  &  glue,   the  Chocolate   &  Candy  Hearts  and  flowers,  because    "St. Valentine's Day"    is  the  theme!

Your task is to incorporate  the theme Valentine's Day in a beautiful, free, user-friendly new Journal skin or an equally beautiful new Journal design through the use of colour, typography, graphics, design or any other elements which you think relate to the theme in one way or another. You're free to interpret the theme in any way you want, but in the result the theme must be clear at first glance.

This contest will have two categories: Even if you can't code CSS you can still participate.

1: Complete CSS - A fully functional skin with design and code, preferably as Installable one.

2: Design Only - A skin design only.  You will be required to provide the unflattened psd file or high quality individual spliced images if your design should be chosen as winner. The design will be coded and made freely available for use.
