Altered "Berry Basket" card

The Berry Basket Bigz L Die in the Occasions Catalog has been carried over into the new Annual Catalog coming out in June.  I am so glad to see it in the new catalog because it is for more than just making cute baskets.  My card today shows how I used part of the basket to create this flower pot birthday card.
When you run your paper through your Big Shot to cut the basket you will cut enough to make two baskets.  For my card I ran Crumb Cake Card Stock through my machine and then stamped over it with the Hardwood Stamp using Chocolate Chip ink.  I tied a piece of Crushed Curry Baker's Twine around the basket and added my birthday wishes.  This was placed onto my card with dimensionals.
For my flowers I used the Fun Flower and Pansy punches and pieces of Brights and Subtles Designer Series Paper from the paper stacks.  A few pearls were added to my flowers and this was placed onto my layers of Daffodil Delight Designer Series Paper and Card Stock.  In addition I punched a few Old Olive leaves using my Bird Builder Punch.
