A Tisket A Tasket- You Bet I Have A Basket

Did you see the news this week? Oh yea I am thrilled to be here today with my first  Cheery Lynn project as a team member!!!

This week our challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs is  

Make A Basket

Here are the rules:
  • You MUST follow the theme and use at least one Cheery Lynn Designs die, of course, we would love to see more than one. 
  • You MUST add a link to your blog post in the InLinkz at CHEERY LYNN's Challenge post; no back posting, only new projects are allowed
  • You MUST link to our blog in your post
The winner will be chosen based on merit by Cheery Lynn Designs. They will receive a $20 coupon for shopping at the Cheery Lynn website. The challenge will end on Sunday night at 22:00 Eastern time.
 Oh yea I had so much fun making this basket! Let me share a list of the dies I used.

Let me say that when I got my shipment of dies from Cheery Lynn I couldn't contain my excitement...oh yea I was like a little girl with new toys!
Can you believe this was the only dies I used? lol
I started by using four square pieces of thin chipboard as my base.Just building the basket piece by piece.The papers I used are called Laces and Grace from Glitz Design, all the colors and patterns in my 8 x 8 pad worked well for creating this basket.
I used adhesive backed card stock for my flourises, made it easy to attach and form around the handle.
I tried to share a few views of the details.My favorite is the window frame on each panel, I love how perfect this frame cuts out and looks.Each panel was given three eyelets and tied together with a clean white ribbon from Really Reasonable ribbon.
Well by now you should know how I love to create using Cheery Lynn dies, they cut perfectly and have such intricate designs they work well with my style.

I hope to see you play along with us this week, looking forward to seeing some more ideas for baskets.
