Penny Black - Easter Basket

Why am I doing an Easter basket when Xmas is coming up ?  I had this Penny Black Easter Basket stamp which I had not used and needed a change of season.  One less Easter treat to make for next year !

The box is 109 mm x 159 mm.  On the longer side score at 50 and 150 mm and on the shorter side score at 40 mm in from both edges.  Make up the box.  The handle is an EK Success Linked Circle Chain border punch with a strip of cardstock backing it.  To fasten it to the box I punched small holes in both the box and handle and inserted brads.

The large circles are from Go Kreate Plain Circles and Scalloped Circles.  The top image is the Penny Black Easter Basket one and it was coloured in using aquarelle pencil crayons and Stampin Up crayons with a blender pen as well as a couple of markers.  The image on the reverse side of the basket is Peachy Keen PK265 Bunny Dolls with the grass being from the PK286 set called Easter Patch.  This image was also coloured in using pencil crayons and a blender pen.  The grass was stamped with Versacolor Sage ink.  I did decorate the sides of the basket with SU stamp set Eggcoutrements which where die cut with Spellbinders Circles.
