Wednesday means another Pixie Cottage Challenge and we have a fun one today! Anything but a card so let your imagination run wild. I chose to do a basket. I used colorbox textured aqua. I cut the handle out and ran it thru the crimper and added the edges made out of MS lace heart punch. I also ran it around the top. I used some gingham that matched, gathered it up and run up the center of the handle and made a bow and a couple of yo yo flowers with it. I used the spellbinder label #4 #13 for the tag and then faux stitched it and added the little flower with a button center. My sweet image is Valentine Hannah by Sandra Hammer. I watercolored her and then cut her out. I added my most favorite thing, flowers to cover the hearts in her basket and a butterfly for her hand. I used a scalloped circle punch for the peach and white flowers and used a spellbinder reverse scallop for the purple flower and added different centers to all of them. Cut out some leaves and grass and it done. Made a fun gift basket.
