Hello blogging friends! I have one more card for your viewing pleasure. I have again used Faber Castell pencils, this one using Mummu from Mo's Digital Pencil. Her digi online shop is chocked full of beautifully drawn images. I hope you will pop over and take a look at all she has to offer.

This is not just a miniature Easel Card, it's also a drawer/box which I had a lot of trouble designing. Let's just say that math is not my strong suit and more paper than I'd like to admit went into file 13!!!

Here is a look at my shaped Easel Card Box...

Here is Mummu up close and personal...you might want to know why I gave Mummu a red petticoat. I needed to tie the color into my dp, but, I had in mind the red petticoat that Rhett Butler gave Mammy in "Gone with the Wind". Somehow I just had to give her a red petticoat and it matches the heart on her skirt.

Here is a side view of the box and you can see that I used a gold rhinestone with a red bead for the drawer pull. It was this box and drawer that gave me such fits. Sheesh! It should be much easier than I tried to make it!

There is a surprise to this box also. The sentiment panel swivels out of the way for a personal message to be written.

Supplies used:

Cardstock - SU Hunter Green, Bazzill White, Cryogen White,
Design Paper - Echo Park Times and Seasons
Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils
Distress Inks - Weathered Wood, Tattered Rose
Spellbinder Labels 14, Labels 21, Lattice Rectangles
Rhinestones - SU
Bead - stash
Sentiment - stash

Thank you for stopping by for a visit today. Your comments always lift my day.

Blessings and hugs
