The Sale-a-bration Count Down with Blossoming Baskets Bundle

Hey there and Happy Thursday! It's a bit rainy here this morning in CNY, but I'll take that over snow any day! So, doin' the Happy Dance here! Anyway, we're counting down to the end of the MOST wonderful time of the year in the Stampin' Up! world, Sale-a-bration. Sale-a-bration is over in 3 days! Can you believe the first quarter of the year is already over with in 3 days? Time flies when you're having fun, right?
Anyway, as part of the count down, I am sharing some of my favorites from this years Sale-a-bration fun! And today, I am sharing the beautiful Blossoming Basket bundle. I absolutely LOVE this bundle and it's available FREE with a $100 purchase (this is one of the level 2 offerings that came out in the second release in February) but I also have a fun opportunity to win this bundle from me and I'll tell you more at the end of this post :)
To create this card, I started with a standard card base from Whisper White, 8.5" x 5.5" scored and folded at 4.25"; I cut a piece of Lemon Lime Twist 2.375" x 4" and ran it through the Big Shot with the Basket Weave embossing folder from the bundle. I then cut 2 pieces of Designer Series Paper from the Picture Perfect Party Collection 4.25" x 2" and 4.25" x 1.75". I stamped the basket image onto a piece of Whisper White with Basic Black Archival ink and using my Blender pens and the Berry Burst, Peekaboo Peach, Crumb Cake and Old Olive ink pads, colored in the image. I then ran it through the Big Shot with a scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals collection. I added another Berry Burst Oval to the back and layered it to the front of the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. I stamped the Happy Easter, from the You're Inspiring stamp set,  onto a scrap piece of Whisper White that measured .5" x 2.25" and popped that on with a couple of Dimensionals as well. Then, to finish the card, I tied a piece of the Berry Burst 3/8" Metallic Edge Ribbon into a bow and added it to the card using a Mini Glue Dot.
