SC216, Lilykate Basket

We looked after our little 2 1/2 year old grandson and newborn granddaughter while their parents' celebrated their 6th wedding anniversary yesterday and I was whipped!

I'm only 50 but that's too old to look after children..........there is a reason people give birth early in!

Anyway on to the card. This was for yesterday's sketch challenge on Splitcoast Stampers.

It was a different sketch that I thought I could handle quite easily. It took me forever. Silly thing.
Something that just happens and it kind of sucks.......

I used Gina K Design's stamp set Baskets of Happiness which was stamped and coloured with copics. I added Kaisercraft bling to the flowers and some Diamond glaze to the eggs. You can see that in this closeup.

I cut out that image with my Spellbinders nestabilities and then used Basic Grey Lilykate for all my designer paper. The ribbon is May arts and then I added some Prima hydrangea's which were embellished with more Kaisercraft bling! Luv the bling!

Thanks for coming around today!
