Basket Of Love

It's time for a new challenge over at 2 Sisters.  This week we are being sponsored by Digi Doodle Shop and we have the theme of HEARTS
I created the card to look like a cabinet with a basket sitting on top.  To do this I started with a card base of white.  I added light pink card stock to the top of the card. I added a strip of thin white card stock down the center of the bottom white portion. Then I cut a strip of red card stock that I punched the edge using a lace heart border punch and added it across the center of the card.  I cut a piece of white card stock and punch around three of the sides using an eyelet lace border punch.  I added it to the center of the red strip of card stock.  The image I used is called Basket Of Love.  I colored it using crayola and prisma color pencils. I cut the image completely out and added it to the center of the punched white card stock.  To give the look of door knobs I added 2 pink sprinkles on either side of the thin strip of white. 


I am entering this card into the following challenges:
