Easter time 2

I've made another Easter card!
This time, it's my card for Pattie's Creations.
I used a Pattie's Creations image - Easter basket.

Even though I dillied and dallied with this image for a while, 
I found it a joy to colour.
I loved trying to capture the light and dark on the basket weaves and on the eggs.
I tried to give the bow a luxurious feel too (with my promarkers).
I played around with this image after colouring it. as I knew I didn't need 
much more, as I wanted the main focus to be the basket.
It came to me in a flash of inspiration, all of a sudden...
I have an embossing folder that I knew would work well with this image
 and - used with Kraft card - I think it worked!
I added the punched border to resemble a white fence, that I thought would
 make the basket "pop" even more.
The sentiment was generated on my pc and i cut it (and inked it) to look like a little tag.
I carefully chalked the edge of the embossed piece 
and embossed a clean line around the whole thing.

I really like the clean look of your design Vic - the embossed kraft paper is a perfect choice to showcase your basket. The highlights and shadows of your coloring are very nicely done and the punched border "fence" is a perfect choice. Delighted you are sharing your project & creativity with us at 613 Ave C!

Hey Vicky,

Your card turned out just lovely. Your colouring of the egg basket is beautiful. I like that you made it the focal. The embossing folder you used is really subtle and the fence adds the perfect touch. Well done my dear!
