Creative Card Crew Challenge: Child's Play

Hi ya friends,
Welcome to a new challenge at Creative Card Crew! This week, the theme is Child's Play that could be a card for a child, or a card that reflects that inner child that loves to play!
Here's my card:
It's an easel card drawer box. This sweet image is called Carousel Horse from The Stamping Boutique who is our sponsor this week. I love carousel horses- there's something magical about them :)

Here's a closer peek at all its sparkle:
It's colored with Copics, then I covered every inch of it with Stickles! Cotton Candy, Purple, & Stardust Stickles!!! so preeetty & girly! Around the image are some Pearls from my Viva Decor Pearl pen in Lilac :)

Here's a side peek:
And the opened drawer:
I don't know if I'm going to give this one away ;) I did plan on giving it to my friend's daughter, but I'm finding it hard to part with! Hee! Hee! You've got until next Monday to Linky your kid creation to the Creative Card Crew blog & please check out the fabulous cards created by the rest of the DT.

This creation will be playing along at the following challenges:
