Arrow IC408 - The Bella Cottage ~ {09-28-13}

Shabby Chic, Vintage, Baby, Soft and Elegant, all the wonderful terms that come to mind when I visit The Bella Cottage. This wonderful wealth of inspiration was selected by our guest stamper today: Karen B. Barber . Karen is a wonderful artist so please check out her gallery too.

You can view Karen's card design for today's Inspiration Challenge here

My Card

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. Click on the images below to see them bigger. Whether you choose one of those, or pick something entirely different from the website, please let us know which photo served as your inspiration piece please. (I suggest you put the URL on a line by itself - so that we're sure everyone can link off to it.) All inspiration should link back to the The Bella Cottage site.

Use the keyword: IC408 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your keywords.

IC408 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.

I am missing one of my favorite challenges. I'm doing well following my knee surgery and I hope I'm back very soon.
I just wanted to say Hi to you all. Have a great week.

Great site, Audrie! I found a lot of inspiration and since plans changed and I will be home today, I may make more than one card. I apologize in advance for "hogging" more than one spot. Hee!

I had so much fun playing along with you ladies last week that I thought I'd give it a go this week too!

So many pretty things to look at but I chose THIS antique clock to use as my inspiration for this card...
