Drawer Card Done!

   I've been working on this Drawer Card  since I got home from our Disney trip. I had started the drawer part before we left.  I used some paper that I had purchased at my favorite scrapbook store in Florida called Scrappy Boutique. I used my nesties to make the circles. Just Rite stamps is the sentiment, which I really like here. Pearls and beads outline the circles.
   Prima flowers with Martha Stewart"s leaf punch and stamp give it a more natural look. I painted the butterfly with SU markers and used Ranger's stickles to give it a glittery look. 
   I found the template for the drawer card on Splitcoast. You can make drawers that hold different amounts of the nugget candies. The templates helped me in my design of this card/box. Drawer Card Templates

Love the sentiment!

   This card/box takes a little time in the construction, but it is really worth it. This is my first card, but I hope I get better in the design. I am pretty happy with this one, though. Can't wait to give it to someone.
   This is Bellisma's drawer card that inspired me to try a drawer card  of my own. Check out her beautiful drawer card.Bellisma's Drawer Card
   It's so good to be back in my studio. We had a great time on our trip,but home is where the heart is the happiest.
   I took many pictures that inspired me. My next project is to use some of these  ideas in my papercrafting.   Keep checking to see how I do it. Thanks for looking.
