Color Throwdown #233



Hello everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge! The very talented Lori is the hostess this week and she has picked some soft, springy colors for us to play with. I decided to keep the theme of the inspiration photo, too...isn't that basket of eggs and little bunny adorable!!


My card features the adorable diecut basket made with the Die-namics die. A second basket was cut out, sponged with a little brown ink.The bottom part was cutout and popped up to add a little dimension. The embossed basket weaving doesn't show in the picture...next time I think I'll wipe a little white ink over the embossed part to see it it shows up better. The egg, bow, and bunny dies also with the basket set were used for the orange eggs, pink and oranmge bows, and the pink bunny. A Martha Stewart punch was used for the foliage in the basket and the grass Die-namics was used for the grass. The little tag with the sentiment from Verve's  Chocolate Bunnies set and the twine finish it off. 

Be sure to add CTD233 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
