A-tisket A-tasket...

... three freaks in a basket!  You are humming that old nursery rhyme right now, aren't you?!  Come on... admit it... you are going to Google it as soon as you leave here ;)  Let me save you the trouble... from Wikipedia:  CLICK HERE

Ok, back to the card... this is for another challenge from Stampotique Designers: SDC#4 - Easter.  I haven't received my latest order from Stampotique, so I only have four stamps on hand... I think 3 in a Round worked perfectly!  Please click on the photos to see them close-up.

How wonderfully springy and Easter-y... right?  ;)  I hope you can tell I was trying to create a basket handle with the ribbon.  And I went a little edger punch happy on this one.  And look... even some actual handwriting... un-freakin'-believeable.

Stamps:  3 in a Round (Stampotique), rolling alpha (Provo Craft)
Paper:  Bazzill & white cardstocks
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo & Palette Noir
Colorant:  Prismacolor pencils w/ mineral oil blending
Other:  ribbon (TAC), flowers (Archiver's & MM), MS spider border punch, EK Success edger punch, Distress Stickles (flower center)

What do you think?
