Easter Eggs in a Basket

Here is the 4th card from my March SAS.
As soon as I saw Bonnie's Card (seen here... http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1642427?&si=eggs%20basket) I knew I wanted to case it!!

I like being able to take one product (in this case the Top Note Bigz Die) and use it in all sorts of ways. How cute is that basket!! To me, it makes a purchase worth more to be able to use in many ways!!

Almost Amethyst cardstock
Whisper White cardstock
Creamy Caramel cardstock and ink
Sanded background stamp
Well Scripted stamp set
Tea Party DSP
Wide Oval Punch
Pretty in Pink ribbon
Stampin' Dimensionals
Scallop border punch

Thanks Bonnie and SCS for more inspiration!!

Happy Easter Picnic!

I have been wanting to play with my Picnic Parade set and thought an Easter card would be great!!

The flag the bunny is holding was inked with marker and I used the Stamp a Ma Jig to make it longer to fit Happy Easter in it!
I CASED (create and share everything) this card...I haven't yet figured out how to watercolor this well..http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1622820?&cat=18576 Holley's work is amazing!!

Certainly Celery, Ballet Blue, Real Red, Whisper White cardstock
SU Markers
Certainly Celery ribbon (retired)
Scallop Edge punch
Flowers embossing folder (on the blue cardstock...hard to see in picture)
