A fun challenge was issued at http://www.atjoansgardens.com/. Guest designer Sue Walsh (http://a-consuming-passion.blogspot.com challenged us to use her tutorial to create our own similar project. Using the provided heart shaped basket template, I started by using shiny gold cardstock as my basket base. Then it was off searching my "stash of stuff" to find decorative elements. I used: silk ribbon (to create the lavender rose), glass beads, white and purpose pearls, paper flowers, and laces. Lots of glue and sticky fingers later, my basket it done. A sweet little gift bag, I think.
