Tilda Box for Mum

Evening folks,
I hope everyone is enjoying the sunshine, it has been sooo hot here today, in fact I don't like to complain but how come we go from flooding one day to baking hot drought conditions the following day?.
Anyway, I wanted to share with you my latest project that I made for my wonderful mum's birthday. I really wanted to make her something a little special as she does so much for me, helping out in the shop every week and then getting up ridiculously early at the weekends to  help me at the shows.
Well I chose to make her an easel card with a difference and created a 12 drawer box for it to sit on. I thought it might look nice on her craft table with some embellies in.

I used the fabulous sketch from MDUC and used one of my new favourite Tilda's. I coloured Tilda with my distress markers and used some gorgeous DP's from Prima. The butterfly and flourish dies are from Memory Box and the sentiments are LOTV and Hero Arts. Everthing has been distressed with Frayed Burlap DI and faux stitched and then edged in stickles.

A little close up of Tilda

I am entering this into the following challenges:
MDUC - #158 'Sketch'
Midweek Magnolias - #23 'Use 2 Dies or Punches'
Tilda's Town  - #13 'Shabby Chic'
Just Magnolia - #167 'Pearls and Swirls'
Simon Says - 'Let's Play Bingo' (Die Cut, Free and Glitter)

Well hope you like it
Happy Crafting!
