Stamping 411-SSC239

My hubby had to have a procedure done this morning and he is now sleeping so guess what......2 posts from me today! I have some free time as he recoups so I thought I'd make a card and also get things ready for my Techniques II Class tonight.

I saw this sketch challenge on the Stamping 411 website:

And this is my cute little punch art card:

I created a cute embossed basket to hold some Easter eggs and then added more eggs off to the side for my trio strip. Here is a close-up of the basket:

The eggs were made using the Small Oval Punch and the Just Add Cake DSP. The basket was first cut with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch in So Saffron Cardstock, cut slightly more than half in size and then I used the Scallop Edge Border Punch for the edging. The base of the basket is the Small Oval Punch shape cut in half the long way and glued to the half circle. I then embossed the whole basket with the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Folder. Add a bow and a few Rhinestone Jewels for bling!

I glued 2 eggs together to form each trio below:

The panel is also embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Folder. Lots of fun! Thanks for stopping by and don't forget I have another post from this morning so keep scrolling down to view it!
