Shaping Up for Easter

So, it's the final week of the Stampendous shaped-card challenge, and I, sort of, ran out of shapes, so I'm cheating...a bit. You have to admit, I created a cute shape ON the card. Once again I used the Dreamweaver Stencils' Open Egg as a template, but this time I used it to create a Spring basket, with sweet little eggs tucked inside. I stamped and embossed the Cling Egg Trio image from Stampendous using Bark EP, and cut them all out, plus a couple extra for my cracked-open chocolate egg. I played with some fun 7Gypsies papers along with the yummy aqua Bazzill cardstock, but the most fun was creating the woven "basket" from strips of ink-aged ivory cardstock. So, I think that I deserve props for at least creating a shaped, dimensional basket on my card!

The rest of the players this week are:

You have until April 5th to play along with us and link your creation to the Stampendous Impressions' blog, and as an extra incentive for playing, one lucky person (drawn at random from all the entries) will receive this gorgeous Cling Jumbo Hollyhock Stamp Set:
