Easter Basket for Blaize

Hi Everyone,
I can't believe it but I finished Blaize's Easter basket. Wow this took me some major time but I think it was worth it. I have  several pictures to show you. I hope you like it. I am happy with it but I wish I would have made the handle not so wide but it is to late so it will just have to do. If you would like to make this basket you can find a tutorial over at Becca Feeken's blog here. Becca does amazing work and is very creative!
I have used Tilda with eggs in her apron and Edwin bunny which you can order from Diana's web store Magnolia-licious here. I also used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch and my Nellie Snellen flower punches.
I would love to read what you think of my basket and thank you so much for stopping by.



Here is a close up of the ribbon weaving that is on all four sides.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs,
Nancy

Blaize will love this Easter basket. The colours of pink and purple together look fantastic.
I actually love the wide handle. I love all the butterflies and your images are gorgeous. I ahven't got this particular Spellbinders frame otherwise I would have given it a go. It looks very complicated to me
