Cricut Cardz Challenge #70 : Easter cupcake holder

Good evening crafty friends! Despite all those fab design recipes out there, I haven't felt  like making too much the past week  and what I did make felt .... well, they were uninspiring to say the least!!! So last night I sat down and browsed through some of my fav blogs again and then  I started cutting, and stamping and the next thing I know  I had made a card !!!!!**** woot-woot**** This week at Cricut Cardz Challenge the DT have provided us with a yummy spring recipe ..... we are invited to make a Easter cupcake ( or treat) holder and we can use whichever cartridge we like!!!  I recently purchased Simply Charmed and it has so many adorable images on it!!! I found this cute little chick and I just had to use it for this project!

The little chick, I just love his googly eyes, is cut a 1 3/4 " and fits nicely on this basket cut at 4 3/4 " from Sweet Treats cart. I cut a 1/2 " strip of brown cardstock for the handle and decorated the basket with dp ( Reminisce line) that I've had tucked away in my stash!

The little flower on the band is from a diecut from Stampin' Up! which I dipped in ultra thick embossing powder for an epoxy effect and then added a metal flower brad ( also from SU) to it. I covered the band in Marina Mist grosgrain ribbon and made my own paper shred with scraps of cs and my crimper.  this is the perfect sized container for mini chocolate eggs or even a mini cupcake , if I were so inclined as to bake some!!!

Anyway, now I think I'll make a companion card for this little fellow!! Yup, I think my mojo's back!!! Yippee!!

Until next time.... happy crafting!!
