LAD April DT Challenge

Happy Friday, friends! Today is Design Team Challenge day at Lizzie Anne. Our challenge this month was to create an Easter card. I used the flourish-patterned egg from Follow Your Dreams (the Spring 2011 Mix set) to fill this sweet little Easter basket.

The base of my basket started out as an oval die cut shape that I trimmed to resemble a basket shape. I cut 1/4-inch strips of cardstock and then wove them together before stitching around the outside to adhere them to the basket base. Here's a closer look.

The eggs were stamped and cut out, and I inked the edges of each with a little Antique Linen Distress Ink. I tucked them into my basket (there is a back to it, like a pocket, but the eggs overlap it) and added a handle. The bunches of grass were just cut by hand.

I'm so glad you stopped by today, please be sure head over to the Lizzie Anne Designs Blog to see what the other DT members created for the challenge. Have a great day!
