Easter Baskets

Good Morning!  Happy Spring!  I am writing this post Thursday afternoon, so I won't be disappointed that there is probably snow out there or on it's Happy Spring!

These cards will be entered into the Challenges at Simon Says Wednesday, Spring Pinterest Inspiration and  Curtain Call, Jelly Bean.

I thought it would be a good idea just to make all the same style Easter cards. (I have 4 made and needed 6 more)  Next time remind me to make an easier card.  These have a lot of elements. 

I cut the eggs out in heavy card stock using my Cameo, then cut out more eggs in pretty Designer Papers and glued them together.  I ran some of them through my Cuttlebug using Swiss Dots and a Diamond and Dots Embossing Folders to add some texture.  Each egg has the corresponding ink color sponged on their edges.  Using Martha Stewart Fringe Scissors I made 'grass' in 2 different colors.  Gina K Designs stamps used, the basket from Holiday Basket and the sentiment from Basket Blessings.  Stampin' Up! Inks in Pink Pirouette, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party and Wild Wasabi.  Basket image colored with Copic Markers.  Spellbinders Classic Oval die.

Different colored ribbons and enamel brads used for accents.  Background uses a Lattice Embossing Folder.  

Extra postage required.....bummer!

Happy Spring!  (being positive!)  lol
