Arrow IC128 ~ Papyrus En Fleur {05-17-08}

Inspiration Challenge 128 ~ Papyrus En Fleur

A huge thanks to Anne (Itsapassion) for hosting last week while I enjoyed a marvelous road trip vacation. I went through serious stamping withdrawal.

This week’s challenge was suggested by Janice (Smitty2004). I love the colors and design of these beautiful En Fleur candles. I saw the real thing at a Papyrus store on my trip, and they smell wonderful too. Remember, if you see something that you find inspiring; send me a PM with a link.

Make sure you use the keyword: IC128 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card.

My sample ~ Fluttering Butterfly

IC128 Gallery

How to Play ~ View the attached images. You may be inspired to recreate the pieces ~ but that isn't necessary ... get your inspiration from the colors, layout, style or 'theme'. Just enjoy wherever your inspired creative journey takes you. Make the inspiration piece your own. Don't worry ~ no card is 'wrong' and there is no time limit for uploading your card for the challenge. 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 for joining me on this inspiration journey.

Thank you for looking and commenting. I think comments are a great stimulant to the stamper, we all crave it.

Here's a quick idea that popped in my head, so I had to get it on paper before going to bed.

Great challenge this week! I loved the amethyst/black combo, and the design was a good match for my newest stamps. Here's mine: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...0&ppuser=49490

I can't play today, I'm hosting a yard sale all day but when I saw what the challenge was I realized that what I made yesterday really works for it. I just had to share. I hope nobody minds that I shared.
