Arrow IC70 - Handbag

Inspiration Challenge 70 - Valentino Handbag - IC70

So many people with opinions hee hee - this time I was told it was time for a purse or handbag. So I found an adorable one (just don't look at the price tag ).

This Valentino Straw & Buffalo Flower Bag has embroidery but also has touches of leather and metal. The sample image is a bit small, so you can visit Neiman Marcus for a closer look.

My sample is Inspired Embroidery
View Submissions

And if you haven't already heard, Beate's & Daven's birthdays are Monday - did you get your card done?

Please use the IC70 keyword when uploading your card (no space b/n IC and the challenge number).

There are no rules, so let your creative juices run wild -- be *inspired* and go get stamping! View the attached image. You may be inspired to recreate the piece - but that isn't necessary...get your inspiration from the colors, layout, or 'theme'. Don't worry - no card is 'wrong'!

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). Thank you.

Well shoot, I'll just skip the auto insurance payments for the year and a few mortgage installments and I'll run out to buy that purse!! Great choice for an inspiration Karen.

I'm not a purse-a-holic and I don't think I would buy this one for $30, but I'll see what I can come up with in the inspiration department.

BTW--If I had a spare $3,000 I'd spend it on stamps ;o) Got MY priorities straight!!! LOL

Neat bag, Karen. If I had that kind of money to spend on a purse, I would buy something more practical, like more stamps! LOL

Mmmm. I will be dreaming in blush blossom tonight. I will attempt a card tomorrow.

What a BEAUTIFUL bag! I guess it should be since it's a Valentino and is $3000!! I have to paint my bathroom tomorrow and buy accessories to go with the new look. I probably won't have time, but will be SURE to browse the gallery to see the lovely cards inspired by this beauty! Thanks Karen.

Okay, here's what I came up with! This was fun and I think I may have rediscovered my mojo. Maybe I'll try another tomorrow.

Karen, You aren't just whistling dixie about the price of that bag. I went to the store site to get a closer look and almost sucked all the air out of the room when I saw $2900, Wow!!! It is a great inspiration piece to work from though, Karen! I hope the fashion police don't come after us for trying to *copy* the images.

Had to fit the challenge in before I leave for vacation. Can't stand the fact that I will miss a whole week of challenges. Stamp with you all when I get back, don't do too many great things while I am gone!

I gotta ask you....when you buy a purse like that....what do you carry all your stuff in.....if I spent that much for a purse it would be in a glass case in my living room with a warning sign ......."Keep your dirty mitts off!"

At first I thought, order up a dozen or so, but you know things go in and out of vogue soooo quickly, I'll just wait to see what Val comes up with next season. RIGHT!!!!!

I was so excited to make the card that I didn't look at the price until I started reading all of these posts. A purse can cost that much? You gotta be kidding me!
