Beautiful Birthday Easel Drawer Card & Money Envelope

Hi Everyone Sorry i have not had any new makes on my blog lately ,have not been able to get rid of this viral infection i have had for several weeks ,but i managed to force myself to make this piece of gorgeousness for my mum's birthday.

I started off with a piece of cardboard ,made a box shape ,added these gorgeous papers from Pink Petticoats,I dont have any cutting machine so for the scallop edge i used one of the keepsake boards and there was a scallop area on it and went over that cut it out and added that to the box,same with the scallop circle i bought the template from the cutting cafe, added the sentiment that i got from the clipart fairy store ,cut it out added it to the card,i added the flower digi from embellishments on the me to you cd rom & added stickles and pearls.
I put gold peel offs around the papers as a frame  ,added all flowers etc.. from dunelm mill,rejects & used a flower punch for the flowers on the corners and added pearls to them,the enjoy your special day was a sentiment also from the me to you cd rom ,i cut out a scallop shape using the same board previously  and added stickles around the edge of that.
As you can see i added my mums favourite choccies in the drawer,the embellishment on the drawer is also from dunelm mill.

The money wallet i bought the template from the cutting cafe ,printed it onto the fabulous papers from pink petticoats ,added the gold scallop card using the same process as before ,i then added a gold paper fastener and added a pearl to it .Below is a close up of the flowers,pearls etc.. and i wrapped it all in gold swirl cellophane with a gold ribbon i had in my stash ,i hope you like it !
