Basket of Happiness

I picked up this cute Elizabeth Bell rubber stamp, called Basket of Happiness, in a bargain bin at the SECC in October, so I thought it was about time I inked her up and got my Promarkers out.  I stamped her in Rich Cocoa Memento for a soft look, rather than harsh black.  I used the same ink to stamp the sentiment, using a stamp from a magazine freebie set.
 The patterned papers are from a gorgeous First Edition pad called Paper Flowers, to which I've added some mustard card for matting.
I used Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles dies to cut out the topper and it's mat, a Spellbinders Floral Oval die to cut out the sentiment, and my Spellbinders Cherry Blossom set to make the branch of spring blossoms.
To finish my girly card I added some peach organza ribbon with a matching bow, and a few pearls.
