Dresser Card

Hi Guys!
I'm pulling double duty today, combining two DT projects.
The challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil is:
The Start Of Something New
And the challenge at Dutch Dare is:
Fancy Folds.
I thought they worked well together!

I've seen a few people make these cute dresser cards, one of the cutest being Doreen's. You can find her cute card and tutorial here.
My card today is based on her design but changed in measurement to make a 6x6 card. (my fave size)
You can see my clumsy template at the bottom of this post if you'd like the option to make a larger card yourself. Otherwise, follow Doreen's!

My image is Mo Manning  colored with prismacolors and the papers are DCWV.
Sentiment: TLC
My lighting is rather bad, it looks greenish here, but its not in real life. 
You'll have to trust me on that one!

A little close up detail:

And the template I whipped up.
(I will put this in my tutorial section for later)

OK, I think that's it!

Hihi, cute and lovely and brilliant job :) Thanks you so kind for the instructions, too. Before I never thought papercrafting could be this much enjoyment and FUN!
Backing paper is excellently chosen for the rest of the card.
Baby's bath tub colorine is something so gorgeous you don't see too often. Sorry all this hype, but that is amazing.
Kraft works perfectly :)
Totally awesome. xoxo
