Easter Egg Basket



It's time for a new challenge from Pattie's Creations and this week we'd like to see your Easter cards.   I designed an Easter basket from a Grand Scallop circle die and paper weaved the front.  I added handles and buttons to complete the basket.  The star of the basket is this Decorated Easter Egg from Pattie's Etsy store.


I've lightly colored the image with Copic markers, added glitter to the centers of the flowers and flock to the center border.  This gives it a lot of dimension, not to mention lots of sparkle.  Now all I have to do is add a few pieces of candy or Peeps and my Easter basket is all ready to be given to someone.

You'll have two weeks to upload your Easter project to the Pattie's Creations Design Challenge blog.  Don't forget to check out what the rest of the team has created for you.

Gorgeous basket, Anne! I think you're the one who introduced me to Pattie's Creations and I'm just dying to get the wooden shoes with tulips. The egg on the basket is beautiful! Looks just like the sugar eggs in the candy stores!
