Dream Valley Challenge 5 - Easter

Over at Dream Valley this week the theme is Easter, couldn't be simpler, lol.  We want to see your cards, baskets, hats - in fact what ever you make that is Easter related, we want to see it!  This week we are sponsored by the fabulous Stitchy Bear who are offering a $10 voucher for their on-line store.  Over on the DT we had a lot of fun using some of the images available.  Go check out what my other teamies have made but here is mine.

I started with a template for the baskets from Waltzing Mouse (the downloadable templates are in the How To section). They were a dream to make.  I used my new digi paper called Roseheart from my talented friend Ei's shop.  The edges of the liners were cut with Deckle edge scissors and the little flowers were made with Woodware punches and have Liquid Pearl centres.  The little tags (again Woodware punch) have the cutest little bunny from Stitchy Bear called Bunny Flop and are coloured with Stampin' Up inks.  I'm afraid the chocolate won't last till Easter, LOL.  I  made the card with the same papers and image and added a computer generated sentiment framed by my new Nestabilities Fancy Tags.
I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
Sketch and Stash - Great sketch and new papers and image
