Yesterday I mentioned that 3 of the Pretty Pals – the name of my Uplines group, earned Founder's Circle.  This is an exciting accomplishment becuase it is a very select group of all of the Stampin' Up! Demonstrators.  My card today is for my friend and fellow Pal – Ann Schach. Congrats Ann!

The Stipled Blossom creates a vintage looking flower for my basket.  It is a two-step stamp so I was able to pair a light color with a darker color.  I chose Crisp Cantaloupe with Calypso Coral So Saffron with Hello Honey.  The leaves were stamped with Wild Wasabi Garden Green.

 I did a lot of fussy cutting!  Each flower and leaf is snipped out & popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Ann adores Pearls so I showered her card with them.

 In order to create the basket, I stamped the Hardwood stamp with Chocolate Chip Ink on Crumb Cake cardstock.  After cutting strips of the hardwood, I wove them to create the basket.  An Oval Thinlet was used to cut the basket out.  To keep the basket together, I put Glue Dots on the edge pieces.

Fringe Scissors and Garden Green cardstock give the illusion of grass.  A few flowers are tucked in the grass layers.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
