When I bought the stamp set that included this cute basket, I knew I wanted to create an Easter card with it holding eggs.  I'm glad it turned out pretty cute!  I started by blending some Distress Ink onto watercolor paper and flicking on some gold/brown Glimmer Mist to create the egg speckles.

I then used a small oval die to cut out the egg shapes.  I added some extra Distress Ink around the edges to give them a bit of dimension.

I then placed them into the basket.  I layered on some die-cut cardstock and design paper for the background, added some gold crinkle ribbon for a bow, a button and twine, and some punched butterflies to finish it off.

I'm linking up to these fun challenges:
