Good Saturday morning to you!!
I was up at the crack of dawn thanks to the cat rummaging around in my closet
and who knows what she was looking for.....
and the dog pigging my side of the bed....
I just gave up, made a pot of coffee and headed to my creative room!!
I wanted to enter the Cheery Lynn Designs challenge this week (ends tonight)
which is "Easter".
I decided to stick with a traditional, Spring Easter card!
I bought this CLD Large Spring Basket die a long while back...
it comes with the little bunny in the center, so it's like getting 2 dies for one...
However, I realized as many times as I have used this basket die
to hold all my handmade flowers, I never have used it as an Easter basket
that I can remember!!
When I was a child (many moons ago) we had traditional "real" Easter baskets,
not these Sponge Bob, Spider man things you see to day (blah!)
So, I cut my basket out of papers that reminded me of the pretty colors of the
baskets years gone by!!
The center bunny was cut with a "hoarded" velvet yellow paper..yep it has a velvet texture...
a bit of grass was added, and I cut some "eggs" with "Shimmer Sheetz for some
The bow was made with (and I LOVE this die...you must have it) CLD Pretty Pretty Bow die.
I used the CLD Spring Basket Angel wing under the bottom only of my basket
as I wanted to tuck the bunnies, eggs and grass in.
The background is one I just love ...it is SU Decor Dots EB folder..I use it a lot!!
The card base ( I am trying to use my color card stock more and more) is SU YoYo yellow.
I think it came together pretty well.
