Polka Doodles - GDT project #2

Hello all.
A very happy Friday morning to you.
Well it is time for my second venture as GDT for Polka Doodles, thanks for all your lovely comments on my Rudy Christmas Card.
Well this time the challenge over at Polka Doodles is:
So, using the Pretty Sweet CD this is what I came up with:
It's a drawer box Easel card.  The tutorial for the drawer box can be found here.  Once I got my head around the dimensions it call came together quite easily.
The papers, which I have used to cover the box and the ready coloured image are all from, as I said the Pretty Sweet CD, don't you just love those patchwork papers??  The paper on the draw is also from the same CD.  I have attached a handle to the draw for ease of opening.
The image is cut out with my nestabilities and I have added a gorgeous organza swiss polka dot ribbon available here at Crafty Ribbons.  The sentiment is one of the lovely Lynne's at Sentiments 4 You.  I have added a hint of colour using my Flexmarkers.  The little gems are from my stash.
And this sentiment is one from the Pretty Sweet CD.  These sentiments come ready sized for different sized circle punches and are just so fabulous.  I have added a circle of gems to the sentiment and raised it up on sticky pads to make it my stopper for the easel.
And here is where the hidden element is!  Obviously when the time comes this little drawer will be filled with goodies - I know just the perfect little girl I'm gonna send it to as well!
So there you go peeps, my drawer box easel card.  Hope you liked it.
