Arrow IC387 ~ Godiva {05-04-13}

Inspiration Challenge 387 ~ Godiva

This week's Inspiration Site was suggested by Lela ( Serenity_Stamper ) who was shopping in a Godiva Chocolate Store and thought the gorgeous packaging would make for fun inspiration ... remember, you don't have to take the inspiration literally ... maybe you'll find inspiration in thinking about chocolate, hot chocolate, or candy ... just ride the inspiration train wherever it takes you.

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 Godiva Chocolate Store that inspired you.

Use the keyword: IC387 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

Serenity_Stamper's card ~ Wonderful Mom

My Card ~ Chocolate Flowers

IC387 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 IC387 Chocolate Just For You

Stephanie- great challenge! loved the contrast of the golds, browns and hot pink, so I incorporated that into my card, along with SU's Perfectly Preserved, a dc flower, and some puzzle pieces and embossing. Added a Godiva-like pink bow with a brown tie

For someone who loves chocolate (me) this is an awesome site, Stef and Lela. I will be playing along, but will not be able to upload it to my computer for a few days. It is sick with a virus . At least I have my IPad to keep up to date with the challenges. Will upload when my DBIL can come over and fix. Till then, have fun ladies

I had fun with this challenge - however I did not have anything chocolate related - so went after those delicious looking sunflower cookies.
