Hoppy Easter

Hello again and welcome!  I hope you enjoy your stay here.  I love to see where you are from and read your comments.  Thank you to all of you who are following me and leaving comments.  I appreciate it!

Today I have a great project for the challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's where the challenge is Bunnies or Bonnets.  I picked the cutie Polly & Butterscotch.  If you've read some of my other posts you may remember that I love bunnies.  My pet bunny is a tiny little thing.  I usually love an image with a bunny, so this was an easy choice for me.
I colored Polly with my Prismacolor pencils.  My colors were chosen by my DP which I picked with the challenge over at City Crafter in mind for this week.  They had a color inspiration photo.  (which is the same one they used at The Shabby Tea Room last week!)  I really like how the bunny turned out.  I wasn't sure what color he was going to be until I got coloring.  She sure does seem to like her bunny doesn't she?
Here's the front of my creation.  I used the sketch from The Pixie Cottage where there is also the option for Cuddly Critters.  This fits doesn't it?  But wait!  This isn't just a card, although it is that!  Look:
Here you can see the card on the front when it's open.  There is a piece of acetate in the opening so you can see the yummy treats in the small box inside the sleeve!  I designed this small box to fit inside my 6x6 envelopes I get from Papertrey Ink.  They are so sturdy and perfect!  I love them!
Here you can see the small box slid part way out of the sleeve.  I was going to buy the small foil covered chocolate eggs but the small store in town didn't have any.  These work but I think if I mail this I will take out these big eggs and add the small ones. 

I am entering my creation in the following challenges:

Sassy Cheryl's - Bunnies or Bonnets
City Crafter - Photo Inspiration
The Pixie Cottage - Sketch & Cuddly Critters
Top Tip Tuesday - Easter or Animals
Divas by Design - Stamp Something

That's about it.  Thanks for taking a peek!

Blessings & Hugs
