MCS 91 and CTO 104

I've been working on cards like crazy and though I should reserve some to post next week, I need to get them entered into some challenges.

This card is for the My Craft Spot challenge 91 - Glossy Accents and/or Embossing  and
Celebrate the Occasion 104, Happy Easter.

The basket and eggs were cut from Doodlecharms and the grass from Plantin Schoolbook.  I cut the basket from a brown Core'dinations cardstock with a pink back side and embossed it with the checkerboard folder, the closest thing I had that looked like basketweave.

When I sanded it down, the pink showed along the edges of the embossing making it look woven..  The eggs were cut from scraps and the tag from My Craft Spot's Tiny Tags die.  I hand wrote the sentiment in white gel pen.

I still have my homework for the Pattern Play class 5 to do.  I should have done it for a card I will post tomorrow but I got carried away with so many ideas that I didn't see the possibility for a challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and please leave a comment if you are so inclined.
