Happy Monday Challenge- Pastels

The challenge @ Happy Monday Challenge is Pastels! I hope my project qualifies, there is an awful lot brown in there. :( I made this Altered Coaster Easter Basket for my granddaughter. I used "Chicks Rule" digi & sentiments, by Deedee's Digis. If you would like to make your own Easter basket, I found the instructions @ Click HERE
--I put the chick digi & a sentiment, on 2 sides of my basket.
paper & matching stickers- The Paper Studio
digi- "Chicks Rule" - Deedee's Digis
SU! markers
2 buttons
brown ribbon
2 pink brads
5 coasters
brown Paper Shred
The only thing I did different, is I used some thin cardboard, on my handle, instead of cardstock. And then covered it with coordinating paper & a few stickers.
I am entering my project @
The Crafty Pad- use a ribbon
