Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge - Make A Basket



Good Morning :)  I am back again today with my first DT project for Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge where this week our theme is 'Make a Basket'.  Now like I said, I actually made 3 baskets in total, as they were such fun to decorate using such gorgeous dies!

This basket was made using just one sheet of double-sided K&Co paper using a downloaded digi-template.  I inked all the edges before sticking it together to give it a nice soft and finished look.  I used B136 Anastasia Border to decorate the handle and the bottom of the basket.


I then inked and added B117 - Fanciful Flourish, D134 - Small leaves #2, and made a gorgeous shabby flower from the D137 - Sweet Williams die.  I added card candi to both sides of the paper and then B162 - Lace Corner Deco B, sticking 2 together to make the elegant side decoration.


I then filled the basket with more yummy choccy eggs, which also sadly no longer exist!! LOL :D

I have since purchased some more eggs for easter and these are well and truly hidden from my husband and his shovel-like hands! ;)

I will be entering this project in the below competitions:

Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday - Happy Easter
Totally Gorjuss - Swirly Whirly
Crazy Challenge - Spring
Kreative Stempelfreunde - Easter Package
Creative Craft Challenges - Anything But a Card


Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, I appreciate all the lovely comments, they mean so much!  I will be back tomorrow with a card to share, so I hope to see you then.  Have a great day!

This is so pretty & I love the inking of the edges & dies. The use of two corners to make that side decoration is a super idea too. I know some shovel shaped hands too - we've 6 Cadbury's Eggs in the fridge, one fits nicely in my hand but R needs 3 to fill his!
