AN EASTER DELIGHT!

Happy Friday, family-friends!  I'm thinking it's Friday so everyone is happily crafting for the weekend... lol!  I do pray all's well!

I got a very pleasant surprise this week when I found out my wedding box and card was the winner over at the Decorate to Celebrate wedding challenge.  What a wonderful surprise, and I can't wait to receive my mini album made by the fabulous Rhonda of Scrap Happens.

Today's share is an Easter card I made.  This is another card I enjoyed doing and I really like!!!  The front of the card I think is so elegant with the little pom-pom trim:

 
But, it was the inside I had the most fun with:

 
The label is to write/add a short sentiment on or to just sign the card, and the bunny pocket I actually made to  hold one of those little mini chocolates; however, as I didn't have any I just added these lollipops and realized they kind of look like eggs... lol!!!  Here's a close-up of the pocket:
 
 
I used fabric paint to give him texture and pink Liquid Pearls for his eye; I used the same ribbon and bead pearl element as used on the front of the card on the ribbon, and following the theme with the pom-poms by adding one for his little tail.  The word "hello" and the little bunnies on the label as well as the pocket bunny were cut on the eCraft (I finally figured out the settings for my most used scrap paper... lol!)
 
Well, I'm off again!  Love you all and I'll be back soon, so...
 
Thanks for stopping by and, of course, I'll be seeing you!
