It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge




The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

Such a super fun inspiration photo, don't you think?!  It's been unusually warm here in the Pacific Northwest so we've been enjoying the sunshine.  Personally I'm a happy camper when it's 70 degrees..any warmer and I start to get cranky :)

I did a ton of watercoloring on this card and used Ranger Archival Black ink.  The panels were cut with
