Inspired by Erin Lincoln

For the February Blog Hop I knew exactly which card had inspired me the most this month. I loved the cute little Egg Hunt card that Erin Lincoln made for this month's anniversary. Here is Erin's card followed by my own spin on the Easter Basket Card. http://erinlincoln.blogspot.com/2010/02/egg-hunt.html. I was so lucky that my PTI order arrived just in time to use the Tin Type Background for my little basket. (By the way, this is the easiest background I have ever stamped. ) Erin was nice enough to post a tutorial on her blog about how to make the basket using oval nestabilities and Spellbinder tags. For this card, I made the basket just as Erin did using Dark Chocolate ink stamped on a Kraft background. I cut out some eggs with the Egg Hung patterned paper using oval nestabilities. I tried a little of Michelle Wooderson's "messy stitching" in yellow as a frame around the basket. At the last minute I cut some grass from New Leaf paper and a little lemon tart pinked circle with the Happy Easter sentiment. Did you notice the little bunny hiding in the grass? I had to have a bunny on an Easter card. Since I was anxious to try my new Butterfly Dreams stamps, I stamped one of the medium size butterflies with Plum Pudding ink and added some Prisma Glitter for sparkle. Doesn't this card make you feel like Easter? Enjoy the Blog Hop!
