I stamped the woven pattern from Backgrond Fun onto a small piece of MFP Desert Sand, then cut and shaped it into a basket. I punched lots of greenery, using the Martha Stewart branch punch, from August Greens -- my new favorite green. I made the flowers by cutting the very centers of the camellias from Apples and Camellia, sponged them a little bit, and attached them to some twisted wire with glue dots. After I put the basket together, I added the stickles. I cut the rick rack from some cardstock with the pinking blade on my cutter. The "dew drops" were made by punching out three circles with a small circle punch and adding some Alene's Crystal Glaze. Whew!!!
