EBTKS Challenge #16

I made this card for the Everything But the Kitchen Sink Challenge. At EBTKS they create fun and unusual challenges using common household items. This challenge called for the use of nail polish. How clever is that? Sorry, Mom, and sorry, Denami Designs, I cheated on both of you...for this challenge I used my Close to My Heart stamps. The cherry blossoms just screamed for pale pink and dark pink nail polish. I stamped the large cherry blossom in Chocolate Chip ink, then "painted" it with a pale pink, shimmery nail polish. After it dried, I "painted" the center with a darker shade of polish. I then cut it out and popped it up on my branch. I dotted the center of each of the small blossoms with some polish as well. Enjoy...and dream!
Stamps: CTMH Aspiration
Paper: SU Pretty in Pink
Ink: SU Pretty in Pink, Pink Passion, and Chocolate Chip
Other: Michael's ribbon, Pop Dots, and my daughter's nail polish (Thanks, Sydney!)
