Challenge #56

This fortnights challenge of Easter is a nice easy one.  I don't give out Easter cards so for this challenge I used a super digital die cut from My Scrap Chick I purchased last year to make a small basket which I then filled with an assortment of mini eggs.  This was so much fun to make I then made a second on lol.

I love the way this die cut basket looks like a fence and in keeping with that I coloured my card a light brown colour once cut and then rubber stamped in black with a wood texture stamp.  I then made a couple of simple labels using stamps from an Easter set I bought ages ago, another of those sale items that seemed like a good idea and this is the first time it has been used in over 5 years.  The yellow layer behind the sentiment layer on the label is also stamped and then heat embossed.  To finish off I added a simple bow.

Challenges entered:-
