Introducing Bowl of Sunshine...

Today, I have a fun post to share with you!  Today's group on the PTI countdown is all about the new set called Bowl of Sunshine.  I have a fun and super easy project that would be awesome for a house warming gift or any occasion.  First off, here is the card I made to go with the set...


I stamped the colander and apples first, along with the sentiment.  I popped the panel with a little scalloped edge tucked underneath.  That is a fun trim isn't it?  Well, it comes from this adorable new Berry Basket II die....


This gift includes 2 stamped tea towels, a matching card and tag.  I stamped an apple from Teachers apple and added a little extension of Pure Poppy striped paper along the bottom.  The sentiment comes for Bowl of Sunshine. 


I found a 2 pack of tea towels at Hobby Lobby and used a coupon so they were around $3 for the pair.  I stamped the colander in Dark Chocolate, the apples in Pure Poppy, of course.  I added stems and used the single leaf to add a few around the apples.  


Let's talk about this fun basket.  It was so easy to put together!  And the stitching details are so adorable.

The bow is made from Simply Chartreuse Saddle Stitch. 


I filled the basket with some kraft scrunched up paper from Hobby Lobby, as well.  Here is a picture of the towel open so you can see.  Just a quick and simple detail for a fun and easy gift....


That is all I have for today!  I know I said this yesterday....but I can't wait to see what the other girls have made up for today.  Here is the list of places to stop....
