Signs of Spring

Happy Wednesday. I hope the weather is nice where you are. It is suppose to be in the 70's here the next few days. Here is a photo Emilia took. Looks like Spring is definitely on it's way. Super happy about that!
Keeping with the spring theme,Today I want to share this with you.

I started with the SVG Easter Basket Card file from The Cutting Cafe. I cut the base of the basket out of Vintage Cream Cardstock then I embossed it with the Woodgrain Impression Plate and ran my Chai ink cube over it to make it look like real wood. I created the basket weave pattern on top of gingham digi cardstock that I got from this paper pack. The eggs were stamped with a different PTI background patterns then I embossed them with sticky embossing powder and covered them in glitter. The grass was cut from this SVG file. A piece of crochet lace trim was added to the top of the basket and a couple of butterflies were attached to the handle. I finished the front of the basket off by adding a tiny tag that was stamped with the Easter sentiment from the original PTI Mixed Messages set to a bow made out of vintage seam binding and stitched it to the front of the basket. The inside looks like this

That's it for now. I will be back soon with more to share. In the meantime I hope the rest of your week is a great one and as always thanks for stopping by.
