Card and a gift!!!!!

A few months ago in Papercraft Essentials, I came across this card with 4 drawers underneath and so I thought that I would really like to have a go at that.  I started to follow the instructions and it was a bit easier than I thought that it would be.  So here it is, some of my friends are going to be 30 this year so I decided to add some tealight candles into the drawer and I will get a little candle holder to go with it.  As far as I can see it is the perfect present. I hope you like her.

I used blue plain card from the Paper Mill Shop as the solid background and the spotted blue paper is from the Me to You paperstack.  I stamped music notes on to white cardstock and put that on the right hand side stamped using tumbled glass from the Ranger Ink distressed range. 

The stamp is from Lili of the Valley and is called never to old for cupcake.  I really really like her and coloured her in using Promarkers.  The reason I did this stamp and the music was so that I could enter her into a challenge for music and dance. I then distressed around the edges of the stamped image in tumbled glass.

The flowers were from Creative Memories Reflection Series and I love the softness of the colours.  I made up a little bouquet with a few of them as over at Saturday Sketches this was the sketch that I used.

I decorated the bottom of the easel card with the same card and then I added a paper tag again from Creative Memories Reflection Series so that I can write to the recipient who she is for.

This was the sketch that I used but I flipped it around.

  The challenges that I have entered this card into is

Sketch Saturday - The above sketch.
Cute Card Thursday - Music and Dance.

Hope to see you again later.
