Sweet Easter Treat and Tag

Here's a simple and sweet project perfect for today's Easter holiday.  I made it for the current CAS-ual Fridays challenge to make a clean and simple non-card Easter project.

I dressed up a tiny white bucket filled with pastel candies by adding a little tag.  The tag base was die cut from white cardstock using the Tags 1 die from Clear and Simple Stamps

To add some color to the white tag, I stamped CSS's gingham background stamp on the bottom half of the tag in pink ink.  The egg image from the Cart Pals:  Occasions set was stamped above the gingham.  After coloring the eggs in pastel shades using Copic markers, I added a piece of a Favor Flags strip between the eggs and the gingham block.  I stamped the Easter sentiment on the strip, then used a piece of pink ribbon to tie the finished tag to the bucket's handle.

Materials Used:
Cart Pals: Occasions and Gingham stamp sets, I'm a Princess Pink and A Blanc Check cardstock, Perfect Little Black Dress ink, Copic markers (R81, R83, Y11, Y13, Y18, YG01, YG03), Tags 1 and Favor Flags dies, I'm a Princess Pink satin ribbon (Clear and Simple Stamps); Angel Pink ink (Tsukineko); corner rounder; small metal bucket
