Meet Fashionista. She is an image from the Elisabeth Bell Collection for SCACD. Isn't she fun? How many of us shop with a cell phone to our ear?

Today is my granddaughter's birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY NICOLE !!! She loves to shop. I will be going to Alabama to see her the day after Christmas and I will take this to her along with her birthday present. She is 5 years old today.

Now, on to the card. I have wanted to make one of these cards with the drawers. This particular card has 4 drawers with an Easel card on top. I paper pieced the image and colored her hair and skin with Copics. The orange spray is one I picked up at Hobby Lobby.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Cupcake Craft Challenge - Birthday card
Stamp With Fun - Little Presents
Creative Card Crew - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday - Sew Beady - use beads somewhere
Daring Cardmakers - Going Dotty
Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge - Bling it Up
Charisma Cardz - Anything but Christmas
Allsorts Challenge - Anything but a card - I guess this would qualify
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Last Minute Gifts - This was a last minute gift for birthday

The little knobs on the drawers are wood that I painted orange. As you can see, the drawers are also lined with the same background paper as the card.

I love these little Petaloo flowers. They can be used in so many ways.

The picture does not show the stickles around the edge very well. The swirl is also glittered.

This is what the card looks like closed. I hope you enjoyed viewing my card and will stop by again.

You can find the tutorial for this here. Thank you Kirsten.

Everyone have a wonderful holiday and Christmas!!

WOW, this is sooo awesome!! So, I've seen this 4-drawer with an easel on top card style somewhere else as well and am wondering if there's a template or instructions on how to make this that you can share with me?? I'd love to try one!! :) THANKS!

That is such a clever creation! Those drawers are so neat! Yes, I often have a cell phone to my ear, but I'm afraid my profile is a bit . . . wider . . . if you know what I mean. :) I don't think I've ever had hips like that in my life. GREAT colors too, so cheerful. Thanks for participating in the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge this week!

Hi Dianne.
I love your beautiful box. The colour combo is stunning, and so is the easel card on top. I think I have to try this too!!
I'm glad you wanted to try my tutorial, and it's so nice to see the results.

I love your other creations too. You are so talented.

I wish you all the best for the new year.
Hugs, Kirsten
