Alota Easter Basket

I love the way this card turned out...s simple and yet so effective. The paper is Provo Crafts Pathways Illuminations. The paper is so beautiful with colors that are just perfect for Easter. The stamp is from Alota and were created to be used with the oval nestibilities. I used the largest oval and scalloped oval as the center of the stamp. The remainder rectangles are hand cut and are almost square. I attached the ribbon on the angle to add the 3 allusion of shape....oval, rectangle/square and triangle. I think it just adds a bit of flair.
This photo shows the true beauty of Twinkling H2Os...the sheen of color. I only used the pastel colors on this image. I used detail gold embossing powder and used deco pink and cerulean blue makers for the basket and the handles and the H2Os on the eggs and leaves. I love the beauty of this image.
Still more Easter cards to come. I rarely use Pastel colors but I think they work wonderfully for Easter...what will I color today. Check back later. Have a wonderful day.

You are right about the beauty of H2O's. Your card is a beauty because of how you used them too!
