This week at The Pixie Cottage, the challenge is Anything But a Card. There is also a sketch to follow should you choose. Use the sketch or the them or both, but come join us for this week's challenge!
I saw one of these cute baskets back before Christmas somewhere in blogland, then I ran across it again here with this great tutorial. I thought it looked like one of those "fortune teller" paper fold up things we used to make and play with as a kid, and that's what it is!! How cute is that?!? A friend asked me to make some baskets for the tables at a bridal shower, with pink, brown and green as the colors, and she wanted it "funky but elegant". Ooooooookay. Not sure this fits into that description, but I got the colors right. All DP is My Mind's Eye, sponged with Distress Inks. I used the beautiful Faith Sentiments stamp from Michelle's Scrapbooking. The pink roses and top flower were handmade by me, and the other flowers at the base are from Michael's, spritzed with Glimmer Mist. Sorry about the poor picture quality, but my camera has gone MIA and I now have to use my cell phone, and no matter how I tried it would not focus on the sentiment.
