It never ceases to amaze me how prolific PJers are in finding any and all possible loopholes in each and every challenge

Is that a bad thing? Outside of actually breaking the rules, I think that's a good way of thinking outside the box.

I thought I could combine my little party invite with the challenge. I need to send the party invite out right away, but can continue working on the image for the challenge. Any feedback will be welcomed. thanks!

(oops i forgot to remove the color chart) -

Any suggestions on where to upload my images so that it is easier to share?

Hey guys, this is my first challenge so don't be shy with any critiques. I could especially use input on the perspective, and if it reads as a soda can and cola.

If there's time I'd like to add a spilled bag of Pop Rocks too.

Do the Pop Rocks look like they are on the same plane as the can + spill?

Leaning towards this:
