Storage Drawers and GDT Inspiration

Good Morning wonderful people.
I was lucky enough to win the GDT spot in a challenge over at Bunny Zoe's Crafts challenge blog and had to choose a stamp to use.
Boy was that a hard decision to make.
So many beautiful stamps to choose from and you wouldn't believe how hard a choice that is when you have the option of any stamp you want.
I finally narrowed it down to a pretty little fairy stamp called 'Fairy Happy' by Tiddly Ink's
Such beautiful stamps to create with and super clingy which is great because I have clingy stamps that don't cling very well and slip while I am stamping. Not so with the Tiddly Ink's stamps. Even have to pull quite hard to get them back off the acrylic block lol
I wanted to create something other than a card for my GDT debut at Bunny Zoe's so I decided to create a little storage set with the intention of giving it to my Mother-in-law for her vanity desk.
There are 4 drawers in either side for jewellery and such.
My MIL LOVES lace and all things pink and frilly so it's perfect for her.
However, now it is actually finished and I have used my love of faeries, butterflies and pink it looks so pretty sat on my desk so not sure if I will give it away or not.
It also of course has my favourite embellies on whuch are Lace, Pearls and Flowers.
They always give just the right amount of elegance and femininity.
Knowing me i'll make a replica so we can both have one ROFL
The dies I have used in this project are all available at Bunny Zoe's and created by Marianne Designs and are Anja's Vintage Decoration LR0269, Double frame LR0141, Ribbon floral 3 LR0110 and I have also used Butterflies LR0158
I hope you like it as much as I do and thank you for looking :)

  3. a beautiful project! it looks like it took some time to create, but it was well worth it; now making a second one might go faster - when i can't part with something, i convince myself that i need to keep the original for reference. :) thank you so much for playing along with us this month at penny black and more.
