Glittered Egg Easter Basket

This week's challenge on the Cheery Lynn Designs blog is to make a basket. I pulled out some Cheery Lynn Designs dies and put this cute little basket together:

I started by cutting out the smallest egg from the Nesting Eggs set. The Lacy Egg Five was cut from an adhesive sheet and then covered with Lacy Lilac Glitter (Glitter Roll technique from Technique Junkies). I cut out some flowers (Miniature Rose and Medium Rose) and put some brads in the centers. The handle is created by cutting some celery cardstock with the Country Girl border die. Some white tafetta ribbon was weaved through the holes and then I added some bows to the ends.

I bought all the dies from Classy Cards 'n Such. The Nested Eggs and the Lacy Egg dies are not in the store because I asked Beverly (the owner) to order them for me. She is such a sweetie! She's always happy to special order dies for her customers - just send her an email and prepay for the items, and then squeal in delight when they arrive in your mailbox. :-) If you'd like to save a little money, enter in coupon code Holly-10 when you check out and you'll save 10% off your entire order.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Totally Stampalicious - Anything but a card
Creative Monday #5 - Anything but a card

Hope you have a great week!
