A basket full of flowers

Hello everyone, a very gloomy day here in my part of the world, its has been almost three weeks since, we last saw some sun. I am in desperate need of some much needed sunshine and bright day. I was telling my hubby that the government should put up an artificial sun to at least fake the feeling of sun..LOL, I need SUN.

Anyway, regardless of the weather, I am doing my best to cheer myself up, so made a flowery cheerful card. I used a white base, and I had weaved a paper basket using some kraft card stock. It's been a while since I did weaving for my cards. I did the handle to with the same card stock. and the flowers and leaves are stamped and fussy cut, and added using a foam adhesive. These  are from Mama Elephant - water blooms, and so is the sentiment too. Its a pretty simple card, nothing much going on it. I love it though, my daughter loved it, and said, "Mama, you could use eggs instead of flowers in the basket, to make an easter card". Well, will see ;) Hope you like this simple card.
Oops, forgot to mention that, I also added some paper swirls, I don't know why but I felt a compulsion to add those, and rhine stones to the flower centers.

Linking this card with:

Less is More
Oh yes, weaving makes me absolutely happy, so joining in here.

 This makes me happy!

The Mixed Media Card Challenge
Its a simple card, I have used weaving and stamping to create this card, I hope it qualifies here.


I am going with the cue word as it is....haha call me original, that's how I am interpreting this week's cue.

Thank you for stopping by, I really appreciate your kind  feedback :) Have a great day!
