A little green basket

I thought I would have a go at making a little basket using this cute free digital image that Paula from Pollycraft Designs gave everyone this week if you entered her freebie challenge last week.

I made the basket from some green Bazzill 12 x 12 card. I cut it down to 9 x 9 inches and scored at 3inch and 6 inch mark and then cut and glued to create the basket . The handle has been stuck on with some brads so the handle can move. I have done the image on both sides of the basket.

I have used Promarkers to colour the image with 3 shades of green, they are Marsh Green, Apple and Meadow Green. The pretty daisy strip part on the handle was cut using my Martha Stewart punch.

I cut the coloured images out with my circle nestie, matted onto a light blue circles and then onto a darker blue scalloped circles.

I have shredded some green ribbon to hide whatever I decide to put in it before I give it to someone.

I am entering this into the following challenges
