For the challenge I have made an Easter basket. I've used my Cameo Silhouette to cut the shapes. I wanted it to look like bunny was diving into the eggs so his bum was sticking out the other side.

All the card I've used is from Papermill Direct.

Basket: Ivory Linen Embossed
Bunny: White Linen, Pink Sorbet Smooth
Eggs: Pink Sorbet Smooth, New Lilac Smooth, Sky Blue Smooth, Raspberry Pink, Bright Orange Smooth and Daffodil Yellow.
Daffodils: Daffodil Yellow, Bright Orange Smooth and Lime Green Smooth.

I've edged them all with some distress inks.

We'd love you to join in with us on our first ever challenge. Remember you have plenty of time as it is running for 2 weeks. You don't have to use Papermill products but we'd love to see what you get up to with yours if you do use it!! :0)
