The post Stacia let you to have all the information and how to:
 
How to Enter: Post the PID (card number) and the URL (public storefront link – please WAIT for the card to be available in the public marketplace, please DO NOT post a link to your Manage Cards area) as a post in the challenge blog. We’ll forward your entry to the jury.
 
In other words, post your public storefront link to your card in a post on that blog - see down at the bottom where others have entered?

FOR CLARIFICATION these cards should be single words or brief statements that are business oriented. A concept, expression or term that is used as reflection, inspiration or motivation in a business environment. They should not be occasion specific but a card that could be used at any time for any reason.
 
We are reassessing the other subcategories under Business Favorites as there appears to be some confusion and overlap (>>Business Terms and >> Inspirational). This however should not impact your design submissions. If we reorganize or consolidate we’ll make sure your cards are in the right place and eligible for the challenge.

Thank you for the clarification, Mindy. Very helpful to all us artists to have a better idea of what this unique category should contain.  
 
Carry on designers, now you have a greater understanding of the power of this category for business and can create some fantastic new cards for the challenge!
