TMITA/PCC Eggs-traordinary Find











It is time for another TMITA/PCC Monday challenge.  This week  Sue Walsh has given us a very fun challenge to work on.  The Designers  are to use Nina's cute digi "Eggs-traordinary Find" and incorporate it with a paper or altered Easter basket.  When you go over to the TMITA/PCC blog, she has listed a lot of sources for cute Easter Baskets.  You will also find this free digi you can use in this challenge or you can go to Nina's Paper Cupcakes store and purchase an image of your choice. 

In my "stash" of patterns, I had a template for a cute little box I decided to turn into a basket.  A scallop punch was used to create a border along the top edge.  I used two sided dp.  A Martha Stewart punch was used for the handle.  It was attached with glue dots on each side.  The greeting is from GKD.  It was stamped and cut out with Nesties.  Two rhinestone flowers were placed next to the greeting.  Narrow rick rack was attached under the scallops with Scor-Tape. 

The cute designed was printed off and colored with Copic markers.  Flower Soft from Joan's Gardens was glued to the head and tail.  I cut along the design but left a long piece of the card stock under the design so it would "stand" inside the basket.  Pink and purple crinkle "grass" was added on both sides to hold the design up.  Small chocolate Easter eggs were then added. 

On the sides of the basket, a  MS punched flower and butterfly were added.  Rinestones were added to each.

Be sure to go over the the TMITA/PCC blog to see all the other design team baskets.  I hope you will join in on the fun this week.  Here is the prize that will be given to someone entering the challenge.
