I dug out my brayer,glossy card and multi coloured pad..I brayered the background then cut it out with my nesties and the black glitter card...I stamped some flourishes around the outside in black ink..the image is another one from the lovely Linda (thanks Linda) I coloured her with promarkers ... I stamped the spider ,bat and sentiment straight on to the background which is MME boo to you paper..the charm and ribbon are from my stash..
I have been trying to post this card for the last few hours but as per usual for me at the moment I have had nothing but interuptions..phone calls,visitors then my daughter had to use the main computer instead of the laptop..I could have screamed but the plus side was I sat and played while I wait for her to finish and managed to make another card which I will post next..
I have used another Pink Gem designs stamp called Goth Fairy she suited the colour combo I thought so I coloured her with promarkers and added some glitter..I put the black card thought the star cuttlebug embossing folder..cut the flowers with a woodware retro flower punch and added a gem dew drop to the centre..the ribbon and check and red card is from my stash...thanks for stopping by.

Sorry I didn't get back yesterday with any cards... but I went yesterday morning to see a lovely lady called Mrs Cox she is 80 years young you may know her better as Skribble the cartoonist
she very kindly allowed me to go through her designs and pick some so that I could use them to make some cards for my chosen charities I need to take them first to have them copied ..but when I make the cards I will let you all have a look at her fantastic artwork..so when I finally got back home and thoughtI would make a card I had nothing but one of those afternoons with constant interuptions and before I knew it the day was gone...so hopefully not tempting fate for any more interuptons I will be back later with a card..see you later.

this is the inside of the card I inked just little Gem and left the basket off this time and cut two scalloped circles and two plain ones with my nesties...
This picture shows where the four little drawers are and I have lined them with the same paper and put a piece of white card over the front to hide the legs of the heart brads that I used for handles...the card sentiment is one that was free on a magazine and have just matted it on a small nestie and put some clear gloss finish on the top..
This is a side view of the box....I was pleased when it was finished with the way it turned out hope you like it... hope to be back later with a card take care.
