The Papertrey Ink July Guest Designer Challenge

I submitted this basket and card set for the July Guest Designer challenge over at Papertrey Ink. One of the categories was to use a template - another was to use the new Vintage Picnic set.
For my project - I used Lauren's Basket Basics Timeless Template as well as the Vintage Picnic set, the Vintage Picnic sentiment set and one sentiment from Mail Box Greetings (the one on the basket).
I also made 4 little 3x3 cards from Pure Poppy and Kraft card stock to tuck inside the basket - thinking this would be a cute little gift to give a friend that has moved away. I will add envelopes to go with these after I decide if I want little ones that will cost more to mail - or just use regular size ones so they will take one first class stamp postage. Or the cards could just be tucked into a gift!?
I inked all the edges of the basket as well as the Kraft panels of the cards with the Chai tea dye ink. I colored the baskets with Copics. I cut out the basket and layered it over a Labels Four die cut panel. The parcel of letters is stamped separately, colored and layered under the basket with foam dimensionals. Here are the Copics I used for my coloring.
I might have added a little more 'something' to the notes - but I was making this 30 minutes before the 11:59 pm deadline on Monday night - so clean and simple they are!! (I mistakenly thought I had another day to get them in!)

Nicole will be picking the winners and honorable mentions today (7/15) I was fortunate enough to make the honorable mention the last two months so I have my fingers crossed again!
