This week's inspiration website is a gorgeous website called "Eglantyne Shop". Translated, the word Eglantyne means "needle". The store carries an amazing collection of items that are Victorian, shabby, vintage, etc. style. And that's all I've got for you about it!! The descriptions of the items on this web store are all in Chinese, so with the exception of the item I chose as my own inspiration piece, I didn't translate any other parts of it. But I promise, it's gorgeous, inspiring and I hope you'll check it out and play along this weekend (or later after the family festivities are over!). (Also, if you go to Google Translate and copy and paste any of the Chinese wording, you can get the translation!)
If you don't have time to spend browsing "Eglantyne Shop", attached are a few samples from the website that you are welcome to use as your inspiration!
How to Play ~ View the attached sample images and/or browse the suggested website. Get your inspiration from the the individual items, style, patterns, theme or color pallets. Just enjoy wherever your inspired and creative journey takes you! Make the inspiration piece your own! Don't worry ~ no card is 'wrong'! There is no time limit on this challenge and there are no rules. Explore and enjoy ~ be *inspired* to create, have fun, and share your artwork!!
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.
I am sooooooo in LOVE with this site!! Great place for inspiration! I'm hoping to find time to play today, but there is coloring eggs, a skating party, and on and on and on. Maybe this evening! thanks for a great challenge!
Fabulous challenge, thank you! Am having trouble uploading my card, so will be back later after work.

OK. I haven't made my cards yet. Easter weekend. NO time!! Yay!, but ugh too. I went ahead and posted my inspiration so I could find them easily when I get a chance to make cards. Maybe tomorrow night or Monday. This is such a wonderful site! LOVE IT!! Can't wait to have a chance to play!
I love the inspiration challenge I just don't get to play it very often! I needed a little inspiration for a project so I took the opportunity to check out today's challenge. Thanks for the Fun inspiration! I made 4 treat boxes and a card....Just one card and treat box is uploaded for now.
