Heart Basket

This basket was made for Joan's Garden Summer Weekly  Challenge.  The pattern for the basket is provided.  Just hop on over to Joan's Garden and you will find the link.  I used Kraft paper which I then stamped a JustRite Butterfly Garden.  I decided to use my Prisma Pencils to color this.  The ribbon for the edging and bows are from May Arts.  The pink pearls are from Amuse that I used on the edge of both the front and back.  The three flowers by the sentiment (from the same JustRite stamp set) were colored with a Copic Marker and are from Maya Road.  The flower and handle are from My Mind's Eye "Stella and Rose".  The handle was punch with a Martha heart border punch. I scored the flower at 1/4 inch with my Scor Buddy and accordian folded it.  The brad is one I purchased from CTMH.
