Easter Basket #2

I had such fun making the first Easter basket (see below) that I decided to make another. This one is a long and narrow pattern, and very easy. I used another image from Spring Blessings by TreehouseStamps, and a punch. I love the lacy handle, and the big layered flower on it. Inside the flower is a plum colored butterfly with little gold beads on the body. Of course, it has some wonderful candy ... what is Easter without candy? (Or ANY day, for that matter!!) Thanks for looking.

Mom's Easter Basket

The challenge today was to make a basket, using the colors Perfect plum, celery and banana. I made a basket with dp celery and cream, and added some plum and green print in the scalloped circle behind the chickie.

The chick is a digi stamp from a set called Spring Blessings made by TreehouseStamps. It's painted in banana, summer sun, and orange, with a little pretty in pink for cheeks. I added some white gel pen dots for highlights. The brads are cute little yellow buttons, and there's a big celery brad holding the yellow and plum Prima flowers. It's filled with one of Mom's favorite candies!!
