Polished to Perfection - SSSC234

Today's card is a birthday card for a lovely young lady who loves purple, pink, teal and manicures!  I love making cards with the recipient's "loves" in mind.  The sketch is Karen's SSSC234 but I changed the circle element to an oval to fit the image.

I stamped Polished to Perfection onto Bella's Bestest paper with Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured her with copics.  I added a generous amount of crystal effects to the nail polish bottle for shine.

For the sentiment strip I just repeated the stamp "Happy Birthday" in Grape Jelly ink and added a trio of buttons along the edge, as in the sketch.  I added a bit of bling with a teal brad in the middle button, because you can't have too much bling!

On the inside I did my fav fishtail flags in co-ordinating papers.

Here are the copics I used.
