Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge #1 ~ Feeling Nautical

Welcome to the first Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!  

For weeks, the Curtain Call Crew Design Team has been diligently preparing and anxiously awaiting "Curtain Time."  The day has finally arrived and we are thrilled to present our first inspiration challenge, Feeling Nautical.

To start the show, we have a fabulous sponsor, Verve Stamps!  Verve graciously provided our crew with the versatile and classic, yet trendy Strong Anchor stamp set with coordinating Nautical Die Set to inspire us even further with our first challenge.

That's not all, folks!  Verve is also offering the Strong Anchor stamp set and coordinating Nautical Die Set to "The Lead" of the Feeling Nautical challenge!

 



I was thrilled to have Verve as our first Sponsor.  It was so fun to pull out my Strong Anchor set and dies and play with them again :)  I’ve been wanting to make a little nautical banner for awhile so this seemed like the perfect opportunity.  I added the yellow dots as a nod to those fun shorts in the inspiration photo.  Oh, I sure hope you’ll help us celebrate over on the Curtain Call blog…head over there for a ton of inspiration and then join in the fun!
