Mid month reminder for Crafty Calendar Challenge

Hi everyone - middle of April already!
Just thought I'd pop by & remind you of the challenge over at Crafty Calendar this month.
We have 2 sponsors

This time I have used a coloured image from Fabrika Fantasy - Water Fairy.
I had seen the easel drawer card in a magazine & decided to give it a go.
I made the basic shape from white card then covered with patterned papers. On the purple spot paper I stamped around the edge with a stitching stamp.
Die cut some of the spotty paper around the 2 long edges, then matted with the flower paper & some ribbon to make the stopper.
Printed out the image onto white card, die cut using an oval die, used a larger oval to die cut the flower paper.
Inked around all the edges using the same ink that I had stamped the stitches with.
Die cut a couple of tags from some lilac card, and the with love from white card. Placed these tags onto the corner of the card.
Added a bow and a button threaded with some purple hemp thread.
Die cut some flowers from the lilac card, edged with the ink, added these to the card  & some gems in the middles & glitter on the petals.
Added some ribbon to open the drawer with.
Don't forget to pop over to the blog & see the other DT's makes.
Thanks for stopping by.
