Heart Shaped Basket




This is my lavender and lace heart shaped basket for the challenge at Joan's Garden's......
I had to "print" mine on some rather flimsie cardstock, as my printer (that I really do love).....
will not accept my better quality cardstock.....
but what's a girl to do??
I added some lace to the edge...used my small Hydrangea punch for flowers.....
and added "bling" centers...
the leaves were cut with a Sizzix die......
I also opted to use gingham ribbon (my favorite) for my handle.....
I made one of these heart baskets about a year ago for Valentines Day.....
if I didn't have it nicely packed away, I would show you that one, too!
I added some shredded paper to help the cardstock "behave"...
I have 2 more of these printed.....
if I have time I will finish then for the challenge as well!

Diane, everything about this is beautiful. Great colors and the look of gingham is always a hit with me. Great job.

Thanks so much for entering Joan's Gardens Summer Challenge. I hope you have time to do more.
