A Tisket, A Tasket....
...My little cupid basket! The challenge Dawn has for us this week was to use pink, white, and red with a heart! I didn't need any more Valentine cards, so I decided to try out this little basket using Mo's sweet little cupid, available at Mo's. It's made with a 6 inch square piece of card stock. You can find the tutorial for the basic basket here. The handle was made using a Martha Stewart wide lace punch secured to the basket with small brads. I tied a sheer bow and some pearls to the handle, and decorated it with a red ribbon rose and small gold heart. The image is colored with Copics and Prismacolor pencils, with a touch of shine on the wings from a Spica pen. The word is from the SU! set "Warm Words" I stamped it in VersaMark ink and embossed it in gold.
You can never have too much frou-frou on something like this, so I trimmed along the top of the inside with lace. I put a lace trimmed heart and ribbon rose on the back, too. This will be filled with some chocolate kisses as a little token for our granddaughter on Valentine's Day.
Let's see what you come up with this week. It doesn't have to be a Valentine...the challenge theme would be perfect for an anniversary, wedding, birthday, or baby card, too!.
