Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Feeling Nautical


IMG_1737


It's finally here, opening day at the Curtain Call inspiration Challenge and time for the first challenge.
Are you feeling a bit nautical?




Verve Stamps not only provided the crew with stamps on dies for this challenge but they are also the sponsor! So the card that takes the lead in this first challenge will also get their own Strong Anchor stamp set and coordinating Nautical Die Set  dies!




Here is my card inspired by our first photo using these fabulous stamps and dies!
I learned something new through this, I learned how to tie a figure eight knot!
Edit: I am also submitting this cad to the current Simon Says By the Sea Challenge, the challenge was posted after I posted this card, so I am just entering to play along. It wouldn't be eligible for the GC.
