Just Add ... Easter for JAI 111

JAI 111 - Just Add Easter ...

... with an Easter Basket Card.

After spending time crafting with Mae and Tania over the weekend, I was feeling a little sentimental so I decided to join in with the latest challenge at Just Add Ink which is to make an Easter inspired project.

I spotted a new use for my PTI cupcake die on Rebekah Faries' blog - Midnite Lullabies (The Shabby Tea Room DT).  She had made it into an Easter basket.  What a brilliant idea!  The last time I used this die it was for a Christmas Pudding shaped card - so versatile.

If you're looking for some great Easter inspiration, you should hop on over to JAI, be inspired by the gorgeous DT creations and join in the fun!

Here's What I Used: 

Card Stock:  Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, More Mustard (SU), Basket Weave paper purchased from Regal Craft.
Ink:  Pool Party sponged over embossing with sponge dauber
Accessories:  PTI Cupcake Die, Early Songbird EF (Couture Creations), Frond Punch (Martha Stewart), Spice Cake DSP, Oval Punch, Beautiful Wings Embosslits, Basic Pearls, Dimensionals, Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon (SU)

Thanks for stopping by,
