Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Boho Bright

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

We have a new sponsor, Verve Stamps, for the Curtain Call Inspiration: Boho Bright!  A randomly selected participant in the Boho Bright challenge will receive a $30 gift certificate to use at  Verve Stamps, while the LEAD will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!

Oh boy, check out this inspiration photo! I can't wait to see the COLORFUL link list these next two weeks! I'll confess, I was a little anxious about that neon shade of purple (orchid? magenta?), but as is almost always the case, once I actually started playing, I had a blast!

As you can see, I played up the whitewash woodgrain from the wall and then added just small pops of the bright yellow, purple and blue.

I was so glad to see Verve as our sponsor for this challenge! I was on the Verve DT for a long time, so digging through my Verve stash felt like a long overdue, warm, fuzzy homecoming!  The vertical arrow strips and sentiment were done with BORDERLINE, the foliage is stamped with SUNNY DAYS and die-cut with the LEAFY SPRIGS die set, the cork tag was done with the SWEET SCALLOP die, the heart accents were die-cut with FROM THE HEART dies, and last, the yellow border was die-cut with one of the SCALLOPED TRIM TRIO dies.

Make sure you visit each of the designers' blogs for more inspiration!
