So Polished!


It's day five of My Favorite Things teasers - I'm sure you've been enjoying all the gorgeous eye candy from the design team! Today is a la mode day, the flirty girls are back, and today I have a card made with Polished to Perfection!


Rather than colour the whole image, I chose to spotlight the polish bottle. I coloured with copics and added some shine with a glaze pen. My spotlight piece and border were cut with the Circle STAX Die-namics (product links at the end of this post).

You can just see a teeny part of one of the Triple Scallop Borders peeking out from behind my main panel. I've been enamoured with my corner rounder lately, have you noticed?


I cut my layered rose from vellum, I'm loving the subtle look this gives embellishments at the moment.


Inside my card I've stamped a second sentiment and used the medium size of the Triple Scallop Border.

Here are the products I've used today (click for more info!):
