Floral Basket


Hi, I tried to upload some cards last night but my internet is VERY slow and couldn't do it. So I'm up early before work and it is onlyslightly better. We're on satellite broadband and I think there's some problems with over subscription to the service. Have to see what happens.

I stamped this basket on the weekend at my sister's, it's an old Penny Black stamp. The flowers are Heartfelt Creations and the greenery is Memory Box Madeira corner cut from snippets of green card. I cut up and positioned the tendrils with glue at the back of the basket

I'm linking up to the challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More, where the challenge is to Make Your Mark.
I used Prismacolor pencils to colour the basket and tombows to colour the flowers.

Using snippets means I can visit the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop, there's always lots of fun things going on over there!

At Inkspirational it's an anything goes challenge this fortnight.

At Seize the Birthday, there's an option of using pink and 2 images or embellishments to celebrate the arrival of  Jenny's twins,

or to create an anything goes birthday card. 

Materials used: Heartfelt Creations flower and Penny Black basket stamps; Versafine ink & clear embossing powder; Memory Box Madeira corner die;Punch Bunch tiny flower punch for the flower centres; Kaszazz vine border embossing folder; tombows; prismacolor pencils; sentiment sticker from stash.

Thanks for visiting :)

LOVE this adorable basket Cathy - I bet it took ages to snip those little pieces and fix them so perfectly.

Ahem, ignore Mrs A and the chestnuts - I just went and threw a bucket of water over her and the brazier 'cos the chicken's were beginning to think they were next on the menu!

Hugs, Di xx

Such a pretty basket and I love the dimension the 3D flowers give this! I hadn't thought of the Madeira Corner as greenery, but I love how it works. I need to remember that!
