Using my creativity ;)

Today as I was leaving my work place I noticed lying on the pavement next to the cars, a little fruit basket, the ones that you usually use for strawberries... hmmmm I just had to take it... So people that saw me must have thought I was nuts... and those that know me know that I am!  I'm nuts about crafting!!!!

I had seen a few challenges that would be interesting... and as I pick up this little piece of what people would consider trash I was getting some ideas to create something.  Tonight I was all excited to get to my craft room ;)

One of the challenge required that we use digi of flowers from a site giving out freebies.  Well one of my favorite site is from a fellow Canadian.  She is quite talented and for now there is still some freebies on her site.  Here's the link to the 2 images that I used: garden of weeding and flowers.  You really really should check her out!  And please leave her some love as you take wonderful images ;)

So without further ado here is my card:

Can you see where the basket is?!?  well yes... it's under the flowers.  I used all kinds of goodies for this card.  The paper is from It's the little things 6x6 paper pad and Basill Basics papers for the base of my card.  I used a bunch of different spellbinders here: big scallopped square, foliage shapeabilities, floral burst shapeabilities.

I used my copics to color the flowers and the grass on the sign. I colored the sign with vintage photo distress ink and inked the side of the square and around the digi of the flowers.  I also added a bit of ribbon.  Here's a closer look at the digi:

I used a doodlebug design boutique flower brad at the center of my flower.  That was the 1st time that I using my floral burst!  It was fun and I really loved how that brad put it together!

Here's the basket in it's original shape before you think I made it up ;) 
It's the bottom that I used.  I carefully cut out the sides.

So I'm entering it in the following challenges:
  1. Quirkycrafts - (discovered this challenge through Spyder corner one of my favorite blogs  wonderful artist with lots of wonderful freebies as well) - handmade flower and ribbon
  2. Use your stuff - make it by hand
  3. Lollipopcrafts - flowers in bloom
  4. Lej designs challenge - recycle something (I recycled the little plastic basket) ;)  didn't find it in my house... but I could have... if I had purchase some of those this week lol
So hope you liked how I used my creativity tonight.  I've been so busy making all kinds of cards... that it was nice to do one just because I had a crazy idea ;)))
