A tisket, A tasket....I love my Blooms and Basket....

LOL!!! I get more and more clever every day, huh? hehehe!!!

It is actually the baskets and blooms XL die that is exclusive to Stampin" Up for the Big Shot....But it didn't rhyme that way! lol!

Isn't that stinkin' cute!??!??!? I will be giving this to my daughter for Easter.....then I will take it off of her immediately so she doesn't pick it apart...lol!

The card base is chocolate chip. All of the designer series paper here is from Candy Lane....it not only works for Valentine's day, but I think of big chocolate bunnies and eggs when I look at it. So I pulled it out for a "nontraditional colored" Easter card.

I cut the basket out with the baskets and blooms die and the big shot...but that is not all....I then ran it through my big shot with the squares texturz plate. Have I mentioned that I love my big shot yet today???? I made grass by cutting slivers of chocolate chip and wrinkling them up and adhering it to the inside of the basket with sticky strip. I stamped the three eggs from various papers from candy lane and cut them out. I adhered the basket down with sticky strip and left it puffy in the middle. I punched the sentiment out with the word window punch and tied that to the riding hood red taffeta ribbon with linen thread.

Oh yeah...the cute little chick at the bottom....she, as well as all of the stamps here, is from A Good Egg. I paper pieced her shell and mounted her onto the scalloped circle.

Here is a different angle of the dimension and hopefully the texture.

Well...really...what do you think? Did I pull off an Easter card using maybe not so traditional Easter colors????
