A Basket Full of Love Just for You

Hello and welcome to my My Creative Time post for today! :) 

Cathryn was in charge of this challenge and chose to pick something for spring. I can do that! :) If you think you can too, then head on over to My Creative Time and link up! :) 

Designer's notes: 
I cut the circle and then hand cut the handle off of it. In this picture the bottom piece is my "basket" and the top piece is my handle. The middle was used for stamping practice! :)

I wrapped the twine around the center of the handle at the top so it looked more like a "basket". For some reason it looks off centered in the pic above, but I promise it's centered! :) See below!

Here is a dark picture, but shows how well the stamp stamped on the material.

My Creative Time: To My Best Peep™ (bunny die and sentiment)
My Creative Time: Hello Spring™ (egg layering die and daisy stamp)
Xyron 9" Creative Station (to make the egg sticky in order to put glitter on it)
Promarker: Yellow
i-rock and glam rocks in pearl by Imaginisce™
Little Yellow Bicycle: Naturals: Burlap Shapes™
Little Yellow Bicycle: "JB-277" (stick pin)
Little Yellow Bicycle: "JB-279" chipboard shapes (heart, bird, Polaroid)
Little Yellow Bicycle: "JB-106" (bunny patterned paper)
Little Yellow Bicycle: "JB-107" (black background)

I also made this for the Naturals competition for Little Yellow Bicycle

Sweet job on your card! Great choice for the basket as it looks like a woven basket. The grass, glitter and all of the embellishments are wonderful. Great job!
