Hoppy Easter Layout

Today I have an Easter layout to share with you that was created with several challenges in mind.  This layout was created using the Celebrate with Flourish Lite cartridge.
I used the Fiskars Grass border punch at the bottom of the layout to create a grass border and used the Fiskars Apron Lace border punch to add an accent to the solid blue cardstock at the top of the layout.
The Easter basket was cut in half and symmetrically placed in the center of the two page layout.  The eggs were embellished with Cotton Candy Stickles.  I also used some ric rac on the Easter egg as an embellishment.  On each side of the Easter basket, I created a little sign with some metal framed stickers which were attached to heart stick pins.
The bunny and the little chick were embellished with a bling eye and some Timeless Twine in Bubble Gum and Lemonade Yellow.  I also added some twine to the handle of the basket and to the title.
I used my Martha Stewart glitter gel pen to create dots all over the cracked egg.  I also used my white gel pen to add some faux stitching to the layout.
I inked the edges of some of the die cuts and all of the photo mats to create some dimension.  The photo mats were finished off with some ribbon and a few felt flowers..  All of the die cuts were popped up on foam.
