Saturated Canary Mother's day inspiration

Hello lovely folk how are we all?! It's a bit brrrr freezing here today (lots of cold fog about) and there was me thinking that spring was coming with a few recent days of sun!
I have made a little inspiration today for Saturated Canary. I wanted to make a Mother's day card with a difference. I haven't tried one of these cards with draws in before so I figured it was time to give it a go!
I found a tutorial on how to make something like this HERE. I changed the measurements a bit as I wanted mine to be bigger (this is a 6x6) I love the fact there are 2 little drawers to the front and one on either side so thats 4 drawers for little extra goodies!!
I have used Magnolia papers for all of this on kraft card stock. The little drawer handles are made from ribbon and gem brads. The card on top is an easel card and stands up on this sentiment I printed from google search which is mounted on foam pads.
My wonderful image is the darling Snail mail from saturated Canary she is just so cute! I have coloured her with prisma pencils and have edged  in a tsempelglede stamp in Victorian velvet ink. My cute wooden tag is from LLC and has been stamped with a LOTV stamp.
My fowers are a mixture of some stunners from LLC and WOC. There is a prima wooden clock in there and of course that stunning butterfly from Kays Kreative Korner (swoon!) I have also used a bit of pink tulle under the layers for added texture.
Here is ho the card lays flat against the box for ease of posting. Now all I have to do is find some delicious goodies to pop in those drawers and send it off to my mum!
Thanks for coming by my blog again and do pop by the SC blog for some more inspiration and join in with us over on our Facebook page for some challenge fun!
Big hugs

Write more, that's all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what you're talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?Cardsharing Server
