This week's SCS Inspiration Challenge comes to us from Ruche. Ruche was created and designed in 2008 by Mai Olivo and Josh Olivo, with their furry companion Roji. Through trial and error along with inspirations they have collected through the years, Mai and Josh molded Ruche into what it is today - "a vintage inspired boutique with a modern touch". Ruche is a collaboration of everything that has inspired them - fashion, photography, design, and lifestyle.
For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many choices, I’ve uploaded five of my favorites … so just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. The rest of you, remember to let us know which item from Ruche that inspired you.
I invited dawnmercedes to join me and create an additional card to inspire you.
Use the keyword: IC277 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.
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. Remember, if you are inspired by the creation of another artist, please do not use print-outs of the art in your creation or directly copy their work. 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). Also, remember to link to your SCS gallery on this thread. Thank you for joining me on this inspiration journey.

Reason: dont think the link worked right.
Stef, I totally got distracted by shopping on this site! Luckily, I tore myself away and created Birthday Girl - a card for my sweet granddaughter, Anika. Thanks for another great site and fun inspiration.
Location: Currently upstate New York - it could change...
Serious eye candy today, Stef! I'm inspired to sew a new wardrobe and take a jewelry-making class, even if I don't get a chance to make a card today! Bookmarked the site for some shopping, too - thanks SO MUCH!
Within you there is a solitude and peace to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself...
