On your 40th, paint the town red!

Whilst I'm at work I thought I'd share this with you today.  This was a bespoke card for one of my work colleagues to give to a friend on her special day.  My brief was that she loves painting her nails so I knew exactly what I wanted to do but again couldn't find a suitable image.
I have taken the bull by the horns again and have drawn the nail varnish bottle myself, glossy accents is added to the varnish escaping the bottle to give a more realistic effect.

The image is coloured with copic markers and the background emboss is by cuttlebug.

Inside it mentions rather than painting her nails red on her special day.....paint the town red instead...or words to that effect!
I believe Elaine liked the card so that is me a happy bunny!
Enjoy your Wednesday.  x

Good evening Erika, this card is Amazing!! I love what you have done you clever girl. Now you need to have it made into a stamp.
I would never have thought of that.
Taken the idea on board though.
Happy Crafting
