Easter Extravaganza Blog Hop

Hello everyone! Hope you had a great weekend!  Spring is in the air finally and today the Magnolia-licious Challenge blog and the Magnolia-licious Design Team have joined together for an Easter/Spring Extravaganza Blog Hop.    So here is the project I prepared for today:
I made this wagon using a template similar to the one I found at Splitcoast Stampers. I tried following the directions but the measurements didn't work out for me (maybe I just can't follow directions LOL) so I just looked at the pictures and did it my way.  Instead of recreating the basket, I turned mine into a wagon. I wanted to make it look like a wooden wagon so I used a mustard colored cardstock from Bazzill Preppie Pack and ran 2 Distress Ink pads across the top of the paper. This Bazzill cardstock has a grain that mimics the look of wood. I think it came out pretty realistic. I then cut the 8x8 paper into 3/4 inch strips and sponged the edges - I wanted each piece to look like a wooden plank.

I really had fun making this wagon. I used Bunny Tilda on my wagon and for my card, I used Tilda hugging bunny.  Following are the details:

Images: Bunny Tilda,  Tilda Hugging Bunny, and Happy Easter sentiment from Magnolia.
Ink: Memento ink for stamping. Ranger DI Walnut stain and Antique Linen to distress my paper to look like wood.
Copic colors: BV13, BV11, BV000, BV0000, E11, E00, E000, R20, W7, W5, W3, W1, W00, B97, B95, B91, B000, C5, C3, C1, C00, E18, E19, E17, E13, E35, YR23, Y21, Y000
Papers: Bazzill Preppie stack (mustard color and black), Nitwits paper
Tools: spellbinder dies, MFT die, hole punch, miscellaneous buttons/ribbon/string/ladybugs/pearls/and chocolates

Well, I hope you enjoyed my project today.  Thanks for visiting! Have a great day!
