Easter Basket

Wooooweeeeeeeeeeeee it has been a long time since I posted here at the Steel Mags blog! Wowzers!
So nice to see so many followers and so many great creations by my fellow Mag girls!!

I was prompted to make this basket by the challenge going on over at the Magnolia-licious Highlites blog. It is an Easter Extravaganza! There are numerous prizes to be won from the Magnolialicous Store. If you are interested, pls hop over to check out the details to this challenge.
There are 3 challenge categories & this creation is for the last category where they want to see an anything but a card creation. Well, I headed straight to splitcoaststampers to see what I could make....and this little beauty fell right into my lap! So fun to do!

The two white flowers with brad centers, that attach the handle on each side, I bought at Hobby Lobby last year along with the purple chipboard flower & purple chipboard birdie tag. A whole lotta chipboard for a bargain price. Gotta love it!
The little pearly sprigs are from Bizzy Becs Store. I punched some brown leaves with my MS punch and sponged with Vintage photo ink.

I have used this cute little bunny Tilda and went with pinks & purples cuz it just seemed to fit! I added the same color papers, ribbons & accents. Except for the white lace surrounding the base, all the other ribbons are from the Really Reasonable Ribbons Store. My fave ribbon Store!!

Oh & the goodies in the basket did not last long in our house!
