Guesting At Creative Claws

Hello!  I have the honor of guesting at a brand new challenge, Creative Claws.  Owner Anushka is a sweet young girl, same age as my own daughter.  I'm so happy she asked me to help kick off her challenge.  :-)


Creative Claws is a monthly challenge, and I love the concept.  Though I almost never visit a nail salon, I know that nail art is, well, definitely a form of art.  Talk about a tiny canvas!  Each month, Anushka will give players a new inspiration photo.  Here is April's pic:


As you can see, I took the cupcake inspiration literally!  So happy for a chance to pull out a rarely-inked set, Crazy for Cupcakes by Stampin' Up!  I just had to glitter the frosting, and each cherry has a dab of Glossy Accents on it.


I know Anushka would love to see your creations for her new challenge!  You have until the end of each month to link up.  For more details, visit Creative Claws.  

Thanks for dropping by!

I love nail art! I can't seem to keep a manicure long enough to make it worth the effort, but I just love seeing it on other people. Fun idea for a challenge. Your card is just darling. The image keeps calling to me from the SU! catalog. I especially love how you colored it. Very cute!

Great job with the nail art inspiration. How wonderful that Anushka is starting this challenge at her young age.
Your ribbon is beautiful as is the card.
