Sassy choc box

I wanted to show all the angles of this,so i had to take more photos than usual-i hope i dont bore you with them!
I wanted to try one these box's  after seeing a tutorial courtesy of the lovely Val,but i wanted to make it my own-so i changed the draw layout a bit.  As in pics, it has a front draw and 2 side draws, this is my first attempt so im quite pleased with it.
The image is from Sassy Studio, this is part of my prize for winning their challenge about 3 weeks ago-unfortunately i am still waiting for the other one and for my birthday freebie as promised on their website,but im sure they will sort it out when they are ready.
Image is coloured with prisma pencils,and glittered here and there.
The patterned paper is from a huge papermania collection that i have neglected a bit.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid, pins and pearls from my stash.

Sentiment is from TLC, i used tag cutting die and distressed with dye ink, then edged with crystal glitter.

I made the tiny handles using metallic beads and some fine wire (you cant see the wire inside cause i covered it neatly)

I lined the draws with pearlised paper punched with a Martha punch.
(i said there was loads of pics didnt i!)

I think i covered everything!
