Stamps and Smiles - Carrot Basket

Hello & thanks for stopping by! Today's card & project were created for a fun NEW challenge over at The Pink Elephant. Every Monday a NEW challenge is posted PLUS they have wonderful prizes to offer!! This week it's a theme challenge - Easter. Create anything you wish: a card, project, scrap page, altered item, ect...

For my project I created a 7" x 7" square and scored it at 1.5". The corners were scored and folded. I then punched out a hole in each of the corners and tied the corners with some ribbon. The handle was created using a strip of cardstock that measured 2.5" x 8.5". A border was added using the eyelet border punch by Stampin' Up! I then layered a strip of bashful blue and delicate dots designer paper by Stampin' Up!. For some extra detail on the handle of the basket, I stamped out a pair carrots using the Mama Bunny Loves Me stamp set by Stamps and Smiles.
I then created this quick card that measures 4.25 x 4.25. This adorable bunny is from the Sleepy Bunny set by Stamps and Smiles. The image was stamped in memento ink and colored in using my Copics.

Thanks for stopping by! Tomorrow, I have another fun card to show all of you. Until then, enjoy your week!

Jennifer this is absolutely adorable and the sleeping bunny is one of my favourite images in your collection. Well they are all lovely but a sleeping bunny is a bit like a sleeping baby you can't help but love it.
