With Curtain Call you are in the drivers seat and you can take your inspiration however it moves you. This time I took a very literal approach to the challenge and created a card using my Papertrey Ink watermelon stamps and dies!  The literal is the watermelon, I created a banner with them inspired by the flower banner in the inspiration photo and pulled the colours from the photo as well.  he sentiment is a celebration of the bountiful fruits of summer.
