Cute Easter Cameo Silhouette Project

I have some very exciting news, I'm really proud to have joined an Oldie But A Goodie Challenge Design Team.  This is a fortnightly challenge where you have to use something on your project that is at least 6 months old.  I love this challenge as it makes me delve into my stash mountain and to start using it!  So, to celebrate my joining the Oldie But a Goodie Challenge Team, I've made a fun and decorative Easter project on which every item used is over 6 months old!  This project can be used as a Easter Table Decoration or a Door Hanging. 

Project Recipe:
Stamp: Inkadinkadoo
Colouring Mediums: Versamark, Fun Stamps Pearl Blue Embossing Powder
Paper & Card: DCWV, textured card from stash
Tools: Silhouette Cameo, heat gun
Embellishments: Prima Flowers, crystals, organza ribbon, button

I love to use my Silhouette Cameo and often adjust the downloads to suit my own project needs.  For this decorative project, I used as a base a decorative shape called Easter Basket Pockets but I then used the Weld Divide tool to get a basket outline.  I then cut out this shape on some super DCWV glittered cardstock that was from a QVC TSV auto-delivery many moons ago (back in the days when QVC used to have gorgeous, unmissable craft TSVs - those were the days).  All the other shapes were cut on my Silhouette onto some textured

As I do always like to incorporate stamping into my projects, I stamped an Inkadinkadoo flourish repeatedly over the eggs with Versamark ink and then used a lovely subtle Pearl Blue embossing powder.

I sewed a tiny little button onto the yellow organza ribbon bow, and layered Prima flowers together, finishing them with pretty crystals.

To make the project free-standing, I cut a second basket from plain cardstock, scored it about 2cm down from the top and stuck it to the reverse of the glittered basket.  This would look very pretty on an Easter Lunch Table or as a little door hanging.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Fussy & Fancy Friday - Spring Days
Simply Create Too - Easter or Bunnies
Tammy's Scrapin Corner - Easter
