Mo's dp2 challenge dt

Hi All you Mo fans, its time for our challenge on Mo's challenge blog and if you dont know yet Mo's dream team are having a dt call so if you are anything like me and LOVE Mo's images this one may  be for you.
For our challenge this week we want to see "Flourishes"
I am using Hannukah Sarah available at Mo's store and for those of you who are not in the know, Hannukah is the festivity that the Jewish people celebrate while the rest of you are celebrating Christmas.  We give our children presents, and light a menorah for the eight days of Hannukah and each day light from the pilot light, hence the menorah having nine places for candles.
For my project i thought i would make presents for the teachers at my childrens school for the end of our school year before we close for the summer holidays.  I have made an easel card for the top and drawers underneath to add chocolates to and also the candles required for candle lighting.
Colored my image with my copics, the silver flourishes are from making memories, the flowers are from my stash, as are the rhinestones.  I added the hand made charm since i would like the teachers to know that my project was made with lots fo patience and care, the handles i had to change the color of as they were an antique gold to begin with so i heated them up and then dipped them into silver embossing powder and reheated them.  I think the lace doily gives it the added feminine touch as do the flowers and the lacey border punch i used from MS.
have a great weekend
