You Nailed It!

Nailed It

My favorite thing about the new Ellen Hutson release is the variety of punny sentiments. So cute and so funny. 🙂 If you missed the release hop on Tuesday, you can catch it HERE.

I originally had a background behind the nailpolish – it was pink dots. For some reason, I took the background panel out to do something with it and saw the card without it. I liked it so much better! Truly, sometimes, less is more. Here is a close-up of the coloring:

By the way, I know the forum is acting up again with duplicate entries and notifications. I’m working on moving us to something much better. 🙂

Enjoy and have a great weekend!

    Loved the RV colours you chose this time and the time before. They really pop and look exactly like vibrant nail polish. This stamp set is different from what is on offer in the market right now. Ellen Hutson certainly has some unique stamp sets in her Tuesday release and you made this one definitely stand out.

    Yes, you Nailed It, Darlene. Love the coloring and simplicity.

    Awesome and adorable, my granddaughters would love this card.
    The string looks just perfect as the only embellishment, this image needs nothing else.
    Thank you for sharing Darlene, have an awesome weekend.

    Your coloring on the nail polish is wonderful! Looks so real.

    Adorable card Darlene, your polish bottle looks so real and shiny. Love how it turned out! Hugs, Brenda

    I also love how the coloring turned out! Everyone is right–it does look real. Of course, this is coming from a girl who has never owned a bottle of nail polish, but it does look like what I remember seeing in stores! LOL I had to laugh at your comment about needing a “perfect” arrangement of thread. Is there such a thing as a perfect messy nest? 🙂 Seriously, I love your CAS design, and the messy nest does add the perfect finishing touch. 🙂 ~ Andrea

    I love this card! I love nail polish and I love to do my nails. In the winter because of the dry air and its cold in CT except for today where it was in the 60’s, my nails are always breaking and chipping. In the spring and summer and part of the fall, my nails are long and people ask if they are rake or real. My nails are done more then. This card would be perfect for my niece who also loves to do her nails. I love how you made the bottle look like a real bottle. Great job on the card!
