One Stitch at a Time Challenge 235

This time, at One Stitch at a Time the challenge is 'daughers/girls'. Our sponsor is

See the challenge blog for details.

For this challenge, I decided to make a gift for my daughter for Easter, instead of making her a card. I worked with some lovely papers from Panda Bear Designs called Renew Paper Pack 1.

It's a sort of Easter basket idea, to which I will add some chocolate treats once I've managed to buy some! I used a piece of 12 by 12 card for the base, and two of the papers from the pack.
I filled the inside with some shredded raffia, and added some hand-made flowers.
 I added a die cut butterfly to each side, and held the whole thing together with some lace.

And, so you can see a little more of the second paper I used.

The paper pack is not a standard size in the UK, but with the wonders of Photoshop Elements, I was able to resize it to the square format I needed for this project. The butterflies were made with Spellbinders dies, and the flowers with dies from Sizzix's Susan's Garden range. I do love those dies, and have put together quite a collection. It's just a pity that the range is being discontinued (although I've made the most of that by increasing my collection while the dies are being cleared!) I added some colour to the petals with Pan Pastel, and the spotty shading to the green petals with Promarkers.

I hope you can join us this time.

I'd like to enter this project into the following challenges:

A Gem of a Challenge where Spring is in the Air,
