Gift Basket using own DSP

It's definitely time to say HI! again.  Today I'm sharing a basket and matching accessories I made as a gift to my downline when she joined my team.  It's made using a 12" x 12" piece of card stock.

Here's the 12" x 12" card stock flat.  I have used Stampin' Up! jumbo Antique Brass eyelets on the corners to thread the ribbon through.  The images that are stamped on the corners matching the Garden Green card stock were stamped using Versamark ink.  Versamark is a water marking ink and could well be renamed 'Versatile ink' as it's a great way to always have matching ink on card stock.  A 'must have' in that stash of craft materials.
I only had a limited amount of Sunny Garden DSP so decided to improvise and make my own to match.  Using the stamp set "Cottage Garden" and also the wonderful "In colour" inks, Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzazz, Blush Blossom and Poppy Parade, I stamped them on Whisper White card stock.  I knew these would compliment the Sunny Garden DSP perfectly. 
Here's the matching CD case I made to pop in my basket, this is using a piece of my home made DSP, and of course with a butterfly from the embosslit "Beautiful Wings" using Peach Parfait card stock. 
Here's the matching card, little bag of accessories as well as other goodies, using of course my wonderfully created DSP.
Hope this inspires you to take a fresh new look at the products you have and invent new ways to use them. 
Thanks for stopping by
