Easel Drawer Card

Not a very enticing title for this post. It is my friends birthday tomorrow and of course I have left everything to the last moment as usual. I wanted to put some Thorntons choccies in the drawer but our car has had a flat tyre since yesterday and I'm having to wait in for Kwik fit to replace it today so my friend may not have her choccies to go in it if Mr Kwik Fit does not arrive soon. Fortunately I already have her present so will have to think of something else to put in the drawer. Any ideas?

I found several blog tutorials for drawer easel cards to help me make this. I wish I had one of those score pal things as I'm sure it would have made it a lot easier, as I'm not very accurate and wasted a bit of paper on this.

I used 6 x 6 Melissa Frances papers and the stamp is from Crafty Individuals CI - 139. I used pan pastels to tone with the MF papers. The dies used are,  from whimsy the tag,  Cheery Lynn the lace border and the clock is Tim Holtz. I added a touch of white gilders paste to the flower petals, leaves and the edges of the stamped image and finally a touch of diamond stickles.

I'm entering this for the following challenges

This is lovely I haven't tried an easel card especially one with a drawer, not sure of the size perhaps tea lights and you may already have some. Laura
