Easter basket

Spring fairy.

I made this little spring basket to cheer up a friend whos feeling down after getting some bad news.

For the basket I used the Martha Stewart border punch, garden trellis. I coloured it with Distress ink Squeezed lemon and Peacock feathers and stamped it with CI-365, To help keep its shape I strengthened the lower rim of the basket with the plastic circle from a red liner tape.

I stamped and cut out the pretty design elements CI-364  butterfly and flowers and coloured them with distress ink. I did the same with the fairy CI-132. Then arranged everything on the basket and finished with some glitter and sequins over the handle. I'll fill the basket with little easter eggs to complete the gift. I'm entering this in the Crafty Individuals blog challenge.
