A Tisket, A Tasket, A Fallish Kind Of Basket

I saw a cute basket decorated for fall and thought, "I bet I can make one out of paper!" So I gave it a try and this is what I came up with.

This week's challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is to use the shaving cream technique, crayons, or pastel chalks.

I rarely use my chalks, but I thought they would be perfect for coloring my leaves to make them look all fallish. I love how it all turned out! It is just the right size to hold an apple with a side of caramel dip. Very fallish!

So glad I was pushed by the challenge this week to dig out my pastels. I'll have to keep them out on the craft desk to use them more often.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
I hope you head over to Hand Stamped Sentiments this week to play along with the challenge.

Very "fallish" indeed. :) The pastels add such a nice, soft touch to the leaves. Guess you'll have to keep them out. And what an adorable basket, too.
