That's MY Basket

Easter is just 2 weeks away and I have been wanting to do a project with a basket.  Went through many thoughts on what basket and found an old pattern from my stash that I decided to use.

I have 3 boys all under the age of 10.  We attend eggs hunts every year and I find it hilarous how crazy those get.  Now, if my boys had THIS bunny on their basket, I do not think anyone would try to steal their eggs.

I wanted to use the fun pastel colors that go with this time of year.  The basket is made out of 1 sheet of 12" x 12" Designer Paper, by Stampin' Up! from a pack called Fan Fair.  I spritzed DP with Pink Pirouette Smooch Spritz and a combo of  alcohol and Cherry Cobbler re-inker (SU!).  When folding you can stamp before opening up the basket, this is where I used a wheel on each side.

The bunny is a digi from Rick St. Dennis called Creepster Bunny.  I just love that image of the sweet bow.  Bunny is colored in with Stampin' Up! inks and blender pen.  I put Crystal Effects on teeth, rips, bones and highlights on bow.  Finished him off by spritzing with Smooch Vanilla Shimmer.

Everything else is from Stampin' Up!, ribbon, punches, brads, card stocks, inks, and embossing powders.

Stamps are Stampin' Up: Every Bunny, Sent With Love, Every Egg wheel. 

I used Brach's Black Jelly Bird Eggs and yogurt raisins for the candy in the basket.

I am going to enter this basket in the Smudgy Antics challenge this round, Anything But A Card.  There are some great entries so check them out and play along.
