EBTKS Challenge 16 - Nail Polish

When Kelly first gave us this challenge I was a little worried that I wouldn't be able to come up with anything, but now I'm SO SO glad she did. I started by just thinking of different embellishments that could be covered with polish. I finally realized that my crystal hat pins were there perfect thing.
Here are the hat pins I did (the original then covered with a white/cream and pink).
I made a simple card that I let the ribbon do the talking for (this may be a hint at some new ribbon coming for the new release, more info on Tuesday).
Simple but pretty. Since it was so simple I did add a sentiment to the inside panel.
Now I know you all have nail polish so come play along. Plus you'll want to go check our all the other girls cards at EBTKS Challenge.

Plus the winner will get a $30 gift card to...
I hope you all have an amazing Memorial Day tomorrow. Check back Tuesday as we start the next Practicing Creativity release!

Seeing what you did with the nail polish really inspires me! So clever!

Hey that's just like when people cover bling with Copics - way to get something to match even if you don't have the embellishment in the right color: create it!

I'm all ready for Tuesday ;)
