Curtain Call-Melon notes

The second inspiration challenge is now up with the new Curtain Call Challenge Blog. I couldn't resist the pretty colors and I was drawn to the feathers on the little purse. 

I also knew I wanted to use the very cool Stitched  Mats-Circles dies from Lil' Inkers. They were out of stock since they were first released and I snatched them up quick as soon as Laura added them back in the store. They arrived yesterday and I created 3 cards with them. yeah!! they are soooo cool to work with. 

Here is my card. 

One of the things I love about these circle dies is that the stitch marks are added on the positive AND negative of the pieces you cut out.

 I had this kraft panel with the gorgeous stitch marks laying in my scrap pile. I couldn't let it go to waste. I then cut out matching sized circles in the pretty papers from Atlantic paper pad and added them into their matching holes. Love that. 

A few feathers were cut using the MFT Arrows and Feathers Die-namics and I tied on some hemp twine and added a splattering of sequins. The sentiment is from another Lil' Inkers set, Flags and Tags. It's stamped in Calypso Coral ink. 

Here is the inspiration piece from the Curtain Call. Check out the challenge and play along.
