Default JAN08VSNMINI12 ~ I Feel Pretty ~ Chat Thread

Title: I Feel Pretty
Hostess: Lori/chanteuse
Keyword: JAN08VSNMINI12
Time: December 5th, 7:00 PM EST

Check out the gallery for this challenge HERE

I dont know about you, but for me, as a busy mom of two little ones, its hard to find time for a girls night out. When I do, though, I always want to look pretty feminine, maybe a little sexy and so when Im getting dressed for the night, I make sure I choose something that really makes me feel good. Something kinda special that reminds me that Im still me inside my mommy persona!

My challenge for you is to make a card inspired by this party dress:



You may wish to click here to view the original site, where you can zoom in on the photo and see all the wonderful detail in this dress.

Your inspiration can come from anything in the piece colors, motifs, style, whatever jumps out at you there are no rules! Just have fun and let your creativity lead the way. My sample card is attached. I will be looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

My Sample

**There are no time limits for making your Mini VSN creations. However, all challenge submission must be uploaded by Wednesday, December 19th, 11:00 PM EST**

Uploading Instructions:
*Please remember to put in the correct keyword when uploading your image. If you are using additional keywords, you must separate them with a comma. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.
*It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in the chat thread just in case the gallery is being testy.

Love the challenge. I will have to come back to this later. My cakes are done and need to be frosted so that I can get to bed to get up for work tomorrow. Hope the snow holds off and I don't have to shovel in the morning. Catch you ladies later.

I honestly think this is my favorite card that I have made in a long time. Thanks for the inspiration.

When I saw this dress, I immediately thought of a Paris boutique. That led me to Le Jordin paper and Not Quite Navy. There was lavender in the dress, so I added the Almost Amethyst, as well. Enjoy!

This is a gorgeous dress...I was truly inspired to go shopping for one. But I decided to stamp instead. Here's my take on the inspirational dress:

WOW! You guys have much better eyes than me. I was looking at the gallery and saw all the blue and thought I'd clicked into the wrong place. I had to go to the original site and zoom it. LOL!

I just wanted to thank you both for putting together such a fun little challenge. What was supposed to be a Virtual Stamp "Night" turned into a Virtual Stamp "Three Days" for me. Hahaha! Thank you for sharing your time, talents and fun times with us!
