Curtain Call is back!

Do you remember years ago playing along with Stacey's Curtain Call?  Well, I do!  It was one of my favorite challenges and I am thrilled that it's back!  And I'm so excited to be apart of it!  We have a great challenge ready for you in the form of an inspiration photo.  Check it out...



There are so many things to be inspired by in this photo so I chose the anchor and when I see nautical, I think stripes....which I love right now...and the colors!  So here is what I came up with....

A CAS card for sure!  I added in some striped card stock from PTI and then some white twine with a nautical not.  The anchor was die cut and then stamped using Verve's set called Strong Anchor.  I added the sentiment in the same Amuse Navy.  I popped the front up on foam tape and added it to the card base.  


To start the show, we have a fabulous sponsor, Verve Stamps!  Verve generously 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! 



Stop in over at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge blog to see how you can play along!  Also check out all these amazing designers for some Nautical inspiration!
