Just Magnolia Challenge - A Easter Basket

Well this was a challenge and half, although the basket was a Just Magnolia Tutorial, I still found it fiddly to make, if youd like to see how its made just click on the link and it will take you there.
Anyway Ive created the basket from a piece of 12"x 12" piece of paper and once you cut into strips you distress the edges, and the tutorial will show you how to weave them together and create the basket. After creating it, Ive jazzed it up with some ribbons and roses that I bought from Tab.
The Tilda image was stamped onto white card and coloured with my copic pens, after this Ive punched it out with my Oval Nestabilitie die, and then created a mount for it from some pink pearlescent card and a Scalloped Nestabilitie die. Ive stuck it to the handle with a ribbon bow stuck at the top. To finish of Ive filled the basket with some little chocolate eggs. My hubby is now going to polish them of as hes concerned they will get sticky, I think he just making excuses, what do you think?
