Multiple challenge and lots of work

This will probably be lots of photos, but how does one show something that has so many sides without all the photos. I made an advent calendar today, and boy did i enjoy making this.  24 boxes and an easel on top.  five images all colored with copics, sorry no listing of colors used, i gotta make a reminder.  Dp is an old one, but i think its K&co.  I have used "wrapped Tilda", Tilda as Christmas Angel, Christmas morning Tilda, violin Tilda and Tilda with Christmas presents, thats five images.  Some of these flowers are from the new range of flowers that i just got in this week, layered with bead caps.

The handles on the drawers are beads that i pushed brads through.  I used a MS punch for all the lacy bits that you see, tons of star dust stickles, but the bummer is that you can never see it in the photos.
I am gonna enter this in a few challenges listed below

MDUC: Christmas in July
Create 4 fun: flowers
Stamptacular Sunday: Christmas in July

  21. Paola, this is once again an amazing creation! All the work you put in it can be seen from one look - and I really love how you decorated the sides too. So from each angle you look at it you´ll discover something new. I´m sure you can´t wait to fill it and us during christmas time!

    Thanks for joining us at MDUC this week!
