Easter Egg basket minus the eggs

I've made this little basket for my daughter to put some mini eggs in for Easter, but it has no eggs well not yet anyway! Two reasons for this, one very simply we don't have any yet and the second reason is that I've just started a sponsored slim to raise funds for her school as they need a new classroom and I can do without the temptation - chocolate is my FAV! I picked up the tutorial from Splitcoast stampers and changed the size, which is very easy to do as it is very basic. Gonna try something a little more adventurous next time, but anyway onto my little basket.

I'm also entering it into a few challenges
Charisma  something for the kiddies
Creative Inspirations   anything but a card
One Stop Craft   let it shine
Stampin for the Weekend   Easter

The image is by Angela of Sew Many Challenges and I have coloured it with my Whispers Strokes pens, and then glittered the eggs and a bit on the bow.

I just wanted to share this with you all too. My daughter brought this home from school yesterday and at the moment I have no where to hang it for her.

On another note, don't forget you still have time to enter into our "Vintage" challenge over at OSAAT and if you need vintage images check out the store and Junes place Dezinaworld.
Take care all and I'm sure I'll be back with some other bits real soon.
