Easter Joy

As Easter approaches, several of the challenge sites that I participate in have Easter as the theme.  I just received these gorgeous egg dies from Cheery Lynn, so of course, I wanted to use them on my card. I backed each of the fancy diecuts with a bright Easter egg color. The darling chocolate bunny was cut from a Tim Holtz die. The background is dry embossed white on white. Then I added some angelina fibers for the Easter grass. (It's somewhat amazing that I added the grass since I won't let the real Easter grass in my house because it gets all over everything and doesn't vacuum up very well.) The sentiment stamp has been in my collection for a long time and I don't remember the source.
This card is being entered in Blogger's Challenge, the Cheery Lynn challenge, the Sweet Stamps challenge, and I Brake for Challenges.
