Basket Full of Sunshine

I got a piece of the My Favorite Things Blueprints #2 out, today...and fiddled around with it and out of my fiddling, this evolved...

The piece I used is at the bottom with the red arrow pointing to it...
I thought to weave through the first thought was a manly card, but the woven brown Tim Holtz textured paper turned into a basket.  THEN...what to put in the basket??  I thought flowers, hearts, but remembered a Hero Arts "basket" sentiment that, together with a Simon Says Stamp "sunshine" die, went perfectly with 3 die cut suns.  So funny...
Hero Arts: sentiment
Simon Says Stamp: sentiment die
My Favorite Things: die for basket
Lil Inker Designs: large and small suns
Lawn Fawn: the largest sun
6 elements...5 companies...a little cray cray...but cool at the same time
I layered all the suns, the die cut sentiment, and added some paper to the back of the basket for not so much dimension as heft for a strong basket.  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
