This is for the Viva la Verve! April week 2 sketch challenge
I had so much fun playing with the little basket and chick from the new Verve's Chicks Rule set. I stamped, masked, and cut out the basket and handle together. Layered the basket, some die-cut grass via a My Favorite Things' die, the chick, more grass, and the basket, so that the Chick looks like he's nestled in the Easter grass in the basket. I covered the ribbon on the basket with a sentiment from My Favorite Things' Basket O Flopsey set, cut out with Verve's Charming Oval die.
The background is embossed with the houndstooth Cuttlebug embossing folder (it made me think of basket-weave); and the papers are (what else?) MME Stella and Rose.
I tied some ribbon around the handle of the basket, and added some 2mm and 3mm soft blue pearls.
Thanks for looking! Thanks even more for commenting!
