Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 22 Make a Basket

The challenge this week at Cheery Lynn Designs Blog is to MAKE A BASKET!!!!
You must make a basket for this week's challenge!! Just in time for Easter!!

Don't forget to use at least ONE Cheery Lynn die!!
Just in time for Easter I chose to make an Easter Basket.  This is my first attempt at a basket!!! I began with Cheery Lynn's Oval Scalloped Lg Stackers and Oval Classic Lg Silver Stacker.  I used the fifth largest in both to cut the front and back of my basket.  For the base of the basket I cut a 10.5" x 4" Rectangle.  It was scored at 3" on each end and 1/2" in the center.  The handle was created with a 10" strip of cardstock topped with Cheery Lynn's Bunny and Chick Border.  The border was cut from Stardreams paper.  This is where I got fussy.  Using cardstock, I cut individual bunnies, chicks and flowers from colors to fill in the handle. I love the detail it shows and the flowers have Pearls created from a White Viva Decor Pearl Pen.  Here is a picture showing the detail closer:
 Using the fourth largest of the Nesting Eggs, I die cut two eggs and embossed them with Easter Bunny Eggs .  The eggs are cut from Core'dination Cardstock so I sanded them for texture.  The center egg is the smallest of the Nesting Eggs with Lace Egg Five cut from Stardreams.  Fanciful Flourish Exotic Butterlies with Small Angel Wing, Grass Border and Easter Basket 2, the bunny from it complete my basket.  The DP's are Doodlebug and TPC Studio. All pearls are created with Viva Decor Pearl Pen.

This is a picture with some goodies in it!! chocolate!!!!
