Sweet Stamps Challenge 33 - Anything but a Card

Today our challenge at Sweet Stamps blog is to make Anything but a Card.  Anyone can enter, but if you use a Sweet Stamps rubber stamp you get two entries into the challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree.
 

Using my Cheery Lynn Designs Scalloped Oval Stackers Nesting dies and the coordinating Silver Oval Stackers, I created a basket.   I used my Cheery Lynn Designs Diamond Scallop border die for the handle.  The DP is from the Jillibean Apple Cheddar Soup 6x6 paper pad.  I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I have the EK Success Flower Power Paper Shapers punch that matches Sweet Stamps Fancy Flower #5 Tiny and Fancy Flower #6 Tiny.  Using yellow, gold and orange cardstock, I stamped a bunch of the flowers, colored them with Copic markers and then punched them out.  I die cut a Cheery Lynn Designs Fanciful Flourish and then added the flowers. Lastly I added some gold Viva Decor Pearl Pen accents to the center of the flowers.

Be sure to visit Sweet Stamps blog and see what the rest of the team has created for you.   And please join in on the fun!
