Easter bunny basket

This one seems to have taken me forever, spent ages on the DS trying to create the basket with a variety of Cricut cartridges. It's not quite what I had in mind shape wise, but I've faffed enough for one day I think.

The Crate Paper DP is more of the new stock at Sir Stampalot which seems to be walking out of the door quicker than it arrives. Not surprising because it really is yummy, the colours are beautiful, it's double sided and the texture lovely.

I stamped Penny Black 3868J Portraits onto some of the patterned side, cut them out and stuck to the plain panels, the cut out some of the butterflies on the patterned side and decoupaged them adding some glitter. I created the handle using Martha Steward eyelet lace and attached with brads and flowers cut with a stencil through the Big Shot and ribbon on the corners.

My basket fits two challenges Stamping for the Weekend and Everybody Art Challenge who both have the theme Easter.

Hi Brenda. I've just been having a catch up with what you've been up to lately and am so sorry to hear you've not been feeling great lately and are having to wait such a longtime to see who you need to see. I hope things get sorted for you very soon. I send you my very best wishes and a big hug!!
Your cards are all as gorgeous as ever and this basket is brilliant, full of choccy too, who could ask for more.
Enjoy your weekend.
