Thought for the day -

Good morning.  Today I have a project to share with you and although many of you have probably already tried these this is my first.  I am thrilled with the outcome, although, it took me forever to finish!!  I am horrible with dimensions and the tutorial I found was for a 4" easel and I wanted 5.  After a lot of trial and error I finally got the dimensions right.  Yeah!!

I am entering this is a few challenges, one of them being the brand new challenge from Wild Orchid Crafts!!  I just love this store and I have to tell you their service is top notch!! I received my order in 1 week and coming from across the pond I would say that is pretty fast! Bev Rochester is on their design team and it was her project that inspired me to try it out.  Although, mine does not hold a candle to hers.

My easel card was inspired by this weeks sketch at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge.  Here is the sketch
portion of my project.

Here is the entire thing- drawer and all!

Ok I am done with all the pictures!  I am really thrilled with the outcome.  I made this for my mother who wanted a card for a bridal shower.  I told her she had to give a gift card or something really small to fit in that drawer!

Supplies:  card stock is by Stampin Up, Dp is Basic Grey, all flowers, pin, and lace is from Wild Orchid Crafts.  My sentiment stamp is from Stampin Up and my bride is from DigiStamp Boutique.  My flower on my drawer front is a button found in my stash.

Wild Orchid Crafts: Say it with flower
Stamptacular Sunday: the sketch
All Sorts Challenge:  July Love- show a heart. My card has hearts but they are subtle-pin, paper, lace
Totally Papercrafts :  Swirls and Pearls
Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central:  Wedding (to enter you must have used something offered in their store- I used scor-tape, my crocodile, pearls

Thanks for having a look at ALL those pictures!
