Anything But a Card - Happy Easter to Ewe (a little early!)

It's an ABC (Anything But a Card) Day over at Catch the Bug, and it's my turn to create something! :0) I always have a difficult time coming up with projects for ABC Day. I don't have any little ones at my house (my son is 20, and just does not appreciate good paper crafty stuff, ya' know?!). I never know what on earth to do with my goodies once I'm done with them. Hubby keeps every card I give him, and if I start giving him 3D paper objects.....well......I just have no idea where the man will pile them up! lol! Anyhow, it's always a tough day for me to create for my DT assignments, but I am giving it a go! (I have several ABC assignments this year, so I better get used to it, right?! lol!) 

Today I'd like to share my little Easter Egg Basket that I made with my Silhouette cutter. I figure I can put this on my desk and fill it with my favorite Easter know, ALL the available candies for this time of year! lol! I love jelly beans, and those little robins egg malted "thingys".......Mmmmmm.....bring on the sugar! lol!
I decorated this with a little scene that includes several dies in addition to the adorable Bugaboo Stamps image that I used, called Happy Easter to Ewe. I also added some tiny pearls to my little flower centers. A few pop dots, strategically used, add some extra dimension.

Here's a look at the side of the box: I'm hoping you can see the dimension better in this photo.

For the back side of the basket, I used dies to decorate.
