Welcome to the 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 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!
Let's get on with the show!
We are so honored here at the Curtain Call to have the owner of Verve Stamps, Julee Tilman, join us for the Feeling Nautical challenge! Take a look at her amazing creation!
