Variations on the easter basket

I am having so much fun with this stamp- again the same easter basket carrying girl from Pure Innocence (MFT)- this time carrying spring flowers. Used the lattice square embossing folder with an old oval frame to selectively emboss the whisper white CS. I then stamped the girl image and the sentiment on the center of the oval, stamped the girl again on Sunny Gardens DSP and cut out the dress part to paper piece- then colored it in using Cop*cs and then punched out little teensy weency flowers- $1 punch from M*chaels- my favorite for small centers of flowers because they are So tiny- although I would like them to come out with a hand punch- with long handles like the circle punches that they used to have- it would be so much easier on my hand than these dinkie punches that are sometimes really hard to punch a lot-

This is the detail on the flowers - this is a great way to use up those little tiny left over pieces you have left over from all your projects- I have a plastic container filled with small flowers that I punched out from left over cardstock that I was going to throw away anyway- where do you think I got these flowers from? I did add some green ones to add interest as leaves and put gold lame Smooch to add a little sparkle in the center. Added the wreath on her head and a flower that dropped on the floor and another way to use all your easter basket stamps- fill them with flowers!

That is such a sweet little card and I love the flowers in her basket.
