YNS Challenge Blog Hop + other challenges

Good morning and welcome to YNS Challenge #11 as well as our new release Blog Hop today!

Today over at YNS, we are having out new Easter and Mother's Day stamps release! Just in time for the spring & Mother's Day projects. Please come and join us to participate in the hop. If you are coming here from Simmone's Blog, you are in the right track. Otherwise, please start your hop from Karen's Blog.

Before I go on to my project, this time's YNS challenge is hosted by our fabulous Starlet Amy. She has chosen the theme to challenge everyone to make a card or creation that includes A BIG BOW. Please check the "YNS Challenge site" at your last stop of this blog hop to check out the rule & prizes of the challenge.

Here are my projects using the new release stamps - Flower Bouquet Fhiona. I used this stamp set to make a Mother's Day basket & a card. (Please scroll down to the bottom of this post for PRIZE info)

CARD PROJECT - Here is a DT card for the YNS challenge #11. I am also using this card for the following challenges:

**********BASKET PROJECT***********
Here is my basket project. I used the same Fhiona stamp with different colors, so you can see the lighter and the darker colors differences.

Closer view on the image.

Here are some back and the side view of this basket. The "You brighten my day" sentiment also comes with this new stamp set.
