Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge--Watermelon Wonder


It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!  We had an amazing response to our first challenge, not just in the number of participants but in how incredible the submissions were.  Be sure to stop by and peruse the gallery if you haven't already!

For our second challenge, we have this fabulous inspiration board:


As an added treat, we have a generous sponsor this week.  Fresh Squeezed Stamps is offering a stamp set of the winner's choice to the LEAD for this week's challenge.  


For my take on the challenge, I pulled out the colors of coral, melon, yellow, and aqua and focused on the decorative medallions in the upper left corner of the inspiration board, which led me to PTI's Dot Spot stamp set.  After stamping the images on a strip of white cardstock, I adhered it to an aqua panel and stitched along the edge.  The die cut sentiment is from My Favorite Things.

Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! (Pool Party), WPlus9 Design Studio (White)
Stamps:  Papertrey Ink (Dot Spot)
Ink:  Stampin' up! (Calypso Coral, Melon Mambo, Pool Party, Daffodil Delight)
Tools:  My Favorite Things (Happy Hellos Die-namics), Papertrey Ink (Linen & Canvas impression plate), corner rounder
Other:  thread

Be sure to visit the Curtain Call blog for all the details on the challenge and to see the rest of the samples from the Design Team!

I hope to see your entry in the gallery!
