Cheery Lynn, make a basket

The challenge on Cheery Lynn's new challenge blog is to make a basket.  This is actually my second basket and I will add the first one below, no matter what we did the photo blurred the flowers on that one.  I just made a square basket and added the beautiful Victorian romance corner flourish, I cut two of them, for the handle.    On the front of the basket I used the fanciful flourish, Cuties 1 for the flower and the base of the flower is from Judy's blooms and leafOlive branches fill in on the right side.  I don't have the CL eggs so I used their scalloped ovals and cut them out of the pretty paper.  Here is the first basket, some of the same dies used in this one also.
