LOTV shaker/box /easel card

Hi friends!
Hope you are all well and happy!
I started my card yesterday with this idea in mind to make something special for my sister. I thought of a shutter card which is more spectacular but then it ocurred to me to add a box/drawer to it and make it also functional:).
So this is the result:

      I think it looks nice! I love these LOTV faeries, isn't she beautiful and gracious? I'm glad I could find some time to ink her up. It's been a while since I last made a card with a LOTV stamp and I really missed them. This week's challenge at Lili of the Valley is "Ribbon and Bows". This is simpler than "Anything goes" for me...lol!

Stamp: Lili of the Valley- Garden of Wishes
Coloring medium: Promarkers
Papers: Blushbutter - Fairy Things and Butterfly Wings 
Embellishments: flowers and metal corners from Wild Orchid Crafts, gold dew drops from Robin's Nest, lace from The Ribbon Girl, ribbon from stash
Dies: Marianne Design frame and leaf, circle nestabilities, label nesties, gold peel-offs
Misc: glamour dust, diamond stickles, acetate, cuttlebug embossing older, cardboard.
Sentiment: Lili of the Valley

Challenges for my card:
Lili of the Valley Ribbon and Bows
Bunny Zoe's Crafts -  Lace
Karens Doodles - Bold & bright
Ooh La La Creations -  Fancy folds
Squigglefly -Anything BUT the usual
Creative Inspirations Paint - Inspired by Butterflies

Kenny K Krafty Girlz - Die cuts and punches
One Stitch At A Time - Anything Goes
Crafty Creations - #118 Anything Goes

Stampavie and More -  Ribbons
Freshly Brewed -  Inspiration*
Fabulous Friday - Use ribbon or twine.

 Hope you like my card! Thanks for coming by and have a great rest of the week!

Hey Iulia,

Lovely card as usual.. I love the idea of a drawer.. You should do tutorials for such things so that novices like me can pick up some tricks.. All the best for all the challenges for which you have entered yourself...:-)
