Arrow IC108 - Cocktail Dress [29-Dec-07]

Inspiration Challenge 108 - Cocktail Dress - IC108

It is time to get ready for a party - first, we must dress for the occasion! Today's inspiration is a cocktail dress found at Nordstom.

Make sure you use the keyword: IC108 (no spaces or extra characters)

My Sample
Elegant Flourishes

View IC108 Gallery

How to Play View the attached image. You may be inspired to recreate the piece - but that isn't necessary...get your inspiration from the colors, layout, or 'theme'. Don't worry - no card is 'wrong'! There are no rules, so let your creative juices run wild -- be *inspired* and go get stamping!

Don't forget about No Upload Sunday - Let's give the gallery moderators a day off and not upload on Sunday (unless, of course, you are a Fan Club member - yet another reason to spend a little money on your favorite site). Thank you.

I'm not usually awake when this is posted, but I've got a little insomnia going here. I will definitely play in the morning -- as I'm going to try seriously to get to sleep!

Thanks as always, Karen, for coming up with another inspiration!

Great dress, Karen. Sure wish I could still fit into that. My brain is rapidly succumbing to z-land, so I think I need to get off the computer. I'll try to get one done in the morning.

What a gorgeous dress. It's not something I would normally gravitate to, but I really like it. I don't have anything gold so I'll have to pick something up tomorrow so I can play.

I gave my mother-in-law a pack of scrapbooking paper for Christmas that I swear would almost match the pattern in this dress. Darn.

I haven't done these challenges before but I am going to try this one-- will be back later this afternoon/ evening with my creation.

Hi Karen: I know this probably isn't fair, but I just linked a card I did yesterday. I just laughed when I saw that dress for the IC piece today -- the card I did yesterday SO perfectly fits!!! Colors/flourishy design/elegant -- so I linked it -- hope it's OK. I love this IC piece and I hope to do another this afternoon when the house quiets down -- thanks for a great challenge always though I don't play much -- Saturdays are NOT good stamping days in this house!!! LOL!!!
