Chocolate anyone?

Hope you've had a great weekend...mine's been a bit of a roller coaster!
We had an entry to our tag challenge from Wendy which I absolutely loved. In my comment I asked if there was a turtorial and it wasn't long (next day) before an email from Wendy appeared in my inbox with the link to the tutorial. Thank you Wendy!
Now this isn't anywhere near as good as Wendy's but for a first try I'm quite happy lol. You can let me know what you think....

Do you know what it is? All will be revealed shortly....

After humming and hawing I finally decided on Birthday Robyn to be the star. I coloured her in with my Copics and added some GA and GD to the balloon, her party hat and cake/candle. I paper pieced two of the balloons (stolen from MP!) and added spots to her dress with my Inkssentials white gel pen. Ok...are you ready.....

It's an easel card with a drawer!! Cute huh :-D

Guess what's in the drawer...

I can tell you there aren't many of these chocolate eclairs left lol. A moment on the lips a lifetime on the hips hmph!

See this border? It was a gift from a friend but it's actually not the end result border from the die but the remnants. I decided this would suit the project better and I just added the tiny pearls which I think are pretty lush! I used more of my felt for the gorgeous flowers and carried the pearl theme to their centre.

Yummy :-D

Short and sweet...thanks for stopping by

Catch ya later x

Oh I love it Kerry, its looks so sturdy, probably needs to be with naughty fingers going in and out for sweeties lol. Great use of the leftover border too. I've been on a fruit only diet yesterday and today so this is pure torture lol.
