Magnolia Basket Surprise

I knew when I was coloring this never before inked cutie that I wanted to put her in a basket. Thank goodness I had this wonderful basket stamp from Stampa Rosa Inc.
She was colored with Copics again...not really pleased with my shading but it is getting better.Some colors I can see improvement some I still need practce with.
I stamped the image on this basket weave paper and cut out just the outside of the shape. The little hearts are from Maya Road, I ordered a wonderful package some time ago and got some of the greatest supplies.
I used my CTMH Soul Mates stamp set to stamp the little words on the hearts. That great ribbon slide is also from Maya Road, and the ribbon is from Michael's.Can you see I added a rolled doily to the edge of the basket for a little texture?
Can you see the lace background behind the image? My good friend Huggin Mary bought that Stamp of Tim Holtz's and allowed me to be the first to ink it, thought it was the perfect place to use on this card.
