Day 23 Inspired By Nature!

Hi Everyone!  Today's theme in the Crumpet Nail Tart's 31 Day Challenge is Inspired By Nature. This mani all came about because of how bitterly cold it is here! This morning I didn't want to get out of bed because it was minus 2 outside with a wind chill factor of minus 20! OH MY GAH!  here we were thinking we were going to have an easy winter and BAM freeze fest!  Yesterday when I was thinking about what to do for inspired by nature I thought about doing another ho ho gradient with maybe a horse in the sunset.  Why I don't know.  Truth is I'm afraid of horses.  I don't mind petting them but there is no way I'm riding on one. 

So because I was way too cold to get out of bed and face the cold day I lay there thinking about what I could do for inspired by Nature.  Lord knows I could have done snowflakes but instead I remembered a little box of dried flowers I got awhile ago and never used.  And TA DA a mani is born!
I used the lovely A England Bridal Veil and one of my favorite red's OPI Wocka! Wocka! for this beauty
i really love the look of this dried flower on here!  I should have used it for my texture day!
I stamped with BM323 and DRK-A for the ring and thumb
I really love how this turned out!  There is just something so gorgeous about red and black together.

We're almost done with this challenge!  I can't believe it, this one really wasn't as hard as the last one.  Let's see what's in store for tomorrow!
Inspired by a game--hmmmm I hope I can come up with something good for that one!

What has Nature inspired in my fellow Tartlet's??
