Easter card for My Mikes!

Happy Friday!
Let the Easter festivities begin!
Just a quick post because of a ton of things to get done for the holiday.

I made this card over the weekend for Easter, but scheduled it for today on my blog.  I didn't want to take the chance that Mike would see it too early.

Mike just loves these Ghirardelli chocolates.  In fact, his Easter basket was filled with several bags of them in all kinds of flavors.......along with some other goodies, of course.

The Copics used on the basket letters.

I don't have any Easter stamps besides this Bunny4Easter set from the {stamps} of life, so this was what I came up with using what I had.  It's difficult to make a nice, masculine Easter card......and I'm not quite sure that I even accomplished

I combined challenges from The Sweet Sunday Sketch #113 Sketch Challenge and Off the Wall Craftiness #51 Color Challenge which was to use Easter colors.  Just perfect!

Materials Used (All PTI, unless otherwise noted):
the {stamps} of life - Bunny4Easter stamp set
Favor It Box 2 die
Lemon Tart and Kraft card stock
DCWV patterned paper - Citrus Stack
Tiny Tags die
Rustic Button Twine
Memento ink - London Fog
Stampin' Up texture folder - Lattice
Tim Holtz Distress ink - Dusty Concord, Crushed Olive, Worn Lipstick, Wild Honey & Chipped Sapphire
Copic markers
Various colored eyelets
Unknown sheer lilac ribbon

The colour and texture on the Easter basket make it look so much like a wicker basket!! What a great idea. Have a wonderful Easter week-end. Enjoy.

What an adorable idea to tuck candy into a paper basket. So clever and even with grass! Thanks for sharing this with OTWC.
