Polished to Perfection

Hi Everyone! I have a sweet, à la mode to share with you today, Polished to Perfection


The sentiment is from the set and cut out with the Bracket Tab Die-namics. I created the layered borders with the larger die in the new Triple Scalloped Borders Die-namics. I added MFT ribbon in Sno Cone, a MFT Button in Black Licorice, and Bakers Twine in Buttercream.


She is colored with Copics and her skirt is paper pieced. I added glitter pen to the cap of the nail polish.
My papers are from Glitz Design Cashmere Dame.


On the inside I added a pocket for a gift card for a mani/pedi and another sentiment from the set.
