Arrow IC384 ~ Windsor (04-13-13)

Inspiration Challenge 384 ~ Windsor

Since it’s Prom season, I thought we could take our Inspiration this week from the lovely Prom Dresses found at Windsor (you can use anything from the site, but those dresses are what caught my eye).

Audrie ( girlgeek101 ) joined me with some additional inspired designs to get your creative juices flowing

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 design from Windsor that inspired you.

Use the keyword: IC384 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

girlgeek’s Card 1 ~ It’s Spring, Clean and Simple

girlgeek’s Card 2 ~ It’s Spring, Clean and Simple #2

girlgeek’s Card 3 ~ The Blues Have It

girlgeek’s Card 4 ~ The Blues Have It #2

My sample ~ Oh Duck!

IC384 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. 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.

Heart IC384 Davia's Birthday

Stephanie- great site! I was inspired by the Mandie- Mango Prom Dress and made a card for my sweet niece Davia, who is turning 8. I used an I/O umbrella die, a paper flower, and some tags- and embossed the background with CB's birds and swirls EF. Here's Davia's Birthday

My first time joining your challenge - had fun checking out the competition considering I sell women's clothing as my job! Here is my card - inspired by this . Not a fancy card, but I was working one for a Birthday with a certain image in mind.

Nice challenge. Here is my card inspired by the dress. On the front page of dresses, a girl was wearing this dress and walking along a field of tall grasses, thus the wheat. tfl
