Curtain Call Challenge

Hey there! DeNami Design is sponsoring the January 15 Love Letter Challenge over at Curtain Call! Check out this GORGEOUS inspiration photo:


And of course there's a FABULOUS prize up for grabs:


The inspiration photo reminded me of some vintage-style post cards I've seen around in crafty land. So, I decided to use my DeNami Design stamps to try to create my own love-themed post cards.


I made three different designs. Here's a look at each individually:








The first design is my favorite! Which one do you like best?

Wouldn't it be fun to make a bunch of these and package them up like so:


I had so much fun with this project and hope I've inspired you to play along in the Curtain Call Challenge!!!

You can find all of the challenge details on the Curtain Call Challenge Blog! Also be sure to check out the DeNami Design Blog to see how my fellow DT gals were inspired by the same photo!

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a wonderful day!!!
