Paper Blooms Challenge #2

This week's Paper Blooms challenge fits perfectly with the season: create an Easter or spring themed basket/box. I chose a gorgeous pink bloom as my starting point and decided to go sweet and girly with my design.

The finished box measures 4x4. I filled it with white basket shred to create a little nest for my white jelly beans, then used my scallop dot punch to create a border around the top.

I couldn't resist adding this adorable sentiment from My Cute Stamps.

I finished it off with some ribbon and a pearl in the center of my bloom.

So, are you up for the challenge? Create your Easter or spring themed basket/box and leave a link to it on the Paper Blooms blog. You have until next Tuesday to join in on the fun.

Stamps: Jelly Beans (My Cute Stamps)
Paper: Pink Pirouette textured, PTI white
Ink: Pretty in Pink
Accessories: flower (Paper Blooms) Martha Stewart scallop dot punch, ribbon (Dollar Tree, Hobby Lobby), pearl (Kaiserscrapbook), basket shred, clear treat bag, jelly beans
