Now, I've got another Easter project to share today! A cute little Easter ensemble smiley

First, the cute little basket!  I kept this basket pretty simple, but I've seen alot of examples of baskets really done up wonderfully! You can dress it up or keep it simple. I cut the Baked Brown Sugar cardstock using the Berry Bigz Die and put it together with some Sticky Strip, then dressed it up with some ribbon from the Best Year Ever Accessory Pack- a Sale-a-Bration freebie!

Now, for the card. I have to say, I'm really happy with the way the card turned out. I thought it would be cute to have the bird from the Cheerful Critter stamp set coming out of an egg.

I started with the Rose Red card base and added a layer of Daffodil Delight. Then I cut a layer of Soft Sky and die cut the border with the dotted border die from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits die set. Then I added the Painted Blooms Designer Series paper on the bottom of the Soft Sky layer, cutting the edge of it by hand. 

The egg was cut with the Oval Collection Framelit, embossed with the Chevron Textured Impression Embossing folder and then cut by hand in a zig zag for the cracked egg look. smiley

The 'chick' from Cheerful Critters was coloured and then cut by hand and then adhered to the card front. A little Organza ribbon finishes it all off! 

Here are the supplies I used in the ensemble:
