Easter Basket

Here's my project from our Monday night craft session.  After tea and mahoosive chocolate whoopie pies filled with marshmallow, we all made these cute Easter baskets, following the instructions from Quick Cards Made Easy magazine.
The basket is a pretty decent size considering it's made from just one sheet of 12x12 scrapbook paper, I used my favourite Papermania Spots and Stripes Capsule Collection paper again along with some Honey and Hugs paper for the green flowery border and some Bazzil Bling for the punched heart border (made with a Martha Stewart punch) and handles.  The flowers (there's one on the other side too) were made with a Woodware daisy punch and various circle punches and dies, with a lovely glitter brad in the centre.  The handles were attached with brads too, so they can move.
I've filled my basket with yellow tissue paper and chocolate treats for a friend.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges -
Craft Room Challenge - in the garden, anything but a card (flowers are garden element)
LEJ - #45 - add flowers
Shopping Our Stash - #94 - Easter/Spring, my old stash is the flower punches, green card and Honey and Hugs paper
Papertake - Easter treats

Glitter 'n' Sparkle - #24 - Spring/Easter
