The Shabby Tea Room Challenge - Spring n' Stitchin'

Well I never got to that second post yesterday because I didn't finish the card last night. Here is my card for The Shabby Tea Room challenge for week #2, spring themed with some stitching. I went with another easter card because I know I'm going to be needing some in a week!

For this card I embroidered some easter eggs in 3 spring floss colors which was the inspiration to go with this particular soft colour scheme. I've used this particular layout quite a bit and normally I would use 2 different types of patterned paper for the upper and lower background, but I didn't have one single sheet with the colours to match my cardstock, so I gave the cardstock texture using my Big Shot instead. The basket is just hand cut and popped up with some mint floss sticking up for easter grass.

Here is a close up of the easter basket. The edge of the circle is hand stitched and the flowers were made using a combo of flower punches and pearls.

Thanks for stopping by, and check back tomorrow for my Play Date Cafe challenge project:)
