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 these were 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 flourishes, 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.
Thanks for checking out my first project, can't wait to share more each week.
