For the wheel I stamped the outer ring of the left stamp and the inner part of the right stamp with Versamark on white carstock and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

Sponge with Sahara Sand over embossed areas and color with Basic Gray marker around the outer edge of the circle. Repeat for all four wheels and punch out with circle punch.
 Add Jumbo eyelets to the middle of the wheels.
 Make the body of the cart from white card stock. Sponge the edges with Sahara Sand.
 Punch four pieces of white card stock with the word window punch. Cut four stripes of white card stock, 1/4 inch wide, that are as long as the long side of the box.
 Assemble cart rails as shown in the picture and add silver brads. Glue wheels with dimensionals to cart.
 Cut  half an oval of Old Olive card stock as shown in the picture (it does not have to be perfect, it can't be seen once the card is finished). This is the base to which you glue all the eggs and the grass. Stamp about 35 to 40 eggs and cut out. Cut 1/8 inch stripes of Old Olive card stock and run through paper crimper for the grass.
 Glue eggs and green paper strips grass on the Old Olive base. Decorate front and back.
Cut out a 1/4 inch strip and punch a word window from of Basic Grey card stock for the handle. Stamp the sentiment, punch out with oval punch and sponge the edges. Assemble.
