Christmas Gift from Tilda

Good afternoon all,
I did promise I'd be back soon to share more creations with you and here I am. I fell in love with the gorgeous picnic basket made by the very talented Sylvie from the Magnolia DT and instantly wanted to see how it would look as a Christmas basket.

I really love the clean, fresh look of gingham and polka dots so decided to combine the two.

The handle was created with a yummy MS punch, the snowflake is by Cuttlebug and the poinsettia on the top of the box is by Marianne D.
I used 2 of my favourite Magnolia stamps on this project as they are sooo cute. I coloured both of the images with my trusty promarkers and then went to town with my stickles as a girl can never add too much sparkle!
