A Fingernail Art Inspired Card

We can be inspired by anything! I would never have guessed that fingernails could have inspired me to make a card, but that Shirley found the most inspiring fingernails for the newest MFPSpeedyTV Inspiration Challenge (#37 - Fingernail Art):


Since I am an Auburn Fan (and an Alabama Fan too but there were no Elephants in these pictures Benzi), I chose the tiger nails!


I used the Natures Brushstrokes and Lots of Words sets from Marks Finest Papers. My bg(s) on the image panel and butterfly were colored using chalk. I glittered up the butterfly using Sparkle n Sprinkle glitter and SU! Dazzling Diamonds. Papers are SU! and SEI.

Come join in the fun - there is a great prize and you have to admit these fingernails are pretty inspiring!

Hugz!
