Hippity Hoppity Easter Is On It's Way

Hello Everyone! Since the weather is starting to warm up, I've been trying to work in my garden little by little, digging up the grass and weeds that have grown in the flowerbeds during the winter. The daffodils have already come up and gone, which kind of makes me sad. It seems every year when they bloom, warm Santa Ana winds blow here and dry them up and they are gone too soon. When I was at Trader Joe's last week though, they had cut daffodils on sale, so I bought three bunches. They are one of my favorite flowers next to Sweet Peas!
For my card, I used Digi Design Papers from Designs by Angie, Isabel Collection, that I found at MyGrafico. I cut the Egg Shape using the largest egg from the Cheery Lynn XM-18 Nesting Eggs Die Set. Swiss Pixies Bunny Lucy, from C.C. Designs, was colored using Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. I added Hero Arts Ultrafine Prisma Glitter to the hat, dress and leggings. She was released last year and I have been wanting to use her ever since then. I think she is so cute!! The White Crocheted Lace is from Hobby Lobby. The Teal Rose is from Recollections. The Pink Roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The Teal Berries and Pink Ribbon are from Joann's. The Butterflies were cut using Martha Stewart Trio Butterfly Punch and some small flat back pearls from my stash were added to the centers. The "HAPPY EASTER" was stamped using Impression Obsession Clear Sentiments II Set and backed with a flower that was punched using a Punch Bunch Punch.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today! I always love hearing what you think of my cards and projects.
Have a wonderful Spring and a very happy Easter! I hope the Easter Bunny brings you some crafting surprises in your Easter Baskets and lots of chocolates too!
I have entered my card in the following Challenges:

Wow, this looks really great. Love the glittering on this lovely stamp. Have a happy Easter! Unfortunately it's very cold here, it's even snowing today. Seems like we're having a white Easter instead of a white X-mas :)

groetjes, Ellen
