whimsical wednesday challenge

happy thursday :) this is for this weeks  challenge over at whimsical wednesday~ april showers brings may flowers. theyre a brand new challenge site lots of talent and inspiration so be sure to check them out. for my little project i made a basket. im sure youve seen this before. click HERE for an awesome tutorial from aphra from the kraft journal. (i downsized this one using an 8X8 piece of paper and scoring at 2 inches. my handle was cut 1~ 1/2 inch by10 inches. )
i used my cricut and create a critter (duck,umbrella) accent essentials (flowers) and paperdolls ( the cutest bunny evah! ) cartridges. for the grassy stuff i just cut strips of paper and crumpled them up then  uncrumpled and tossed them in :) i attached the flowers to craftpicks painted with t/holtz distress stain and added acrylic paint for the dots and liquid pearls for the centers. thanks so much for looking and your comments warm my heart :)
