Congratulations, Georgia!

My friend,Georgia was recently chosen as a DT member for Stamptacular Sunday Challenges! Woot! Woot! I made this gift basket for her using the Pack a Picnic Timeless Template. I hope you aren't tired of seeing this template in the many versions I have made, but I am in LOVE with it! Georgia's gift fit perfectly inside. CS is JoAnn's and DP is The Paper Studio. I machine stitched around all of the panels. The border under the rim of the box was cut with a MS Arch Lattice punch. My cute little girl is "Leisel" (Swiss Pixies- one of my faves!) from CC Designs. I colored her with watercolor pencils, markers, and glitter pens. I added Hero Arts rhinestones to her hair. I used a Nesties to frame her and then punched a hole in the center of each scallop. The orange flowers are "Got Flowers?." The brown flowers are "Spare Parts" from The Paper Studio. They were originally yellow, but I colored them with a brown Marvy marker. The large rhinestones in the center of each flower are Studio 18. The sentiment on the lid is Stampabilities. I distressed brown ink around the edges. The ribbon is Hobby Lobby, of course. (They have great sales on ribbon!) The handles were attached with rhinestone brads from Karen Foster. Georgia's gift basket fits these challenges: 1. C.R.A.F.T.- Anything but a card 2. Stamptacular Sunday Challenge- scallops 3. ABC- C is for circles 4. Pile It On- Round 5. Stamp Something- favorite stamp + punches 6. A Spoonful of Sugar- distressing 7. TEBB Challenge #13 - stitching
