Happy Easter Card – CC473

cc473 easter

The colors for this week’s Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge (CC473) are Pool Party, Sahara Sand, and So Saffron, and the dessert option is Easter theme.

Pool Party and So Saffron together just remind me of dyed Easter eggs, so that is the direction I took.

I stamped the Longaberger (yes, an official Longaberger basket stamp! Thanks to a friend who used to be a Longaberger consultant!) basket on Sahara Sand with Vintage Sepia and embossed with clear embossing powder. I fussy cut the basket, added some eggs (Stampin’ Up! small oval punch, cut in half) to the back of the basket with sticky tape and then mounted on a white panel that had been stamped with a grass stamp.
