Quirky Crafts challenge - Twisted Easel card

The challenge over at Quirky Crafts Challenge this week was to create a Twisted Easel card (and/or a Mother's Day gift).  I've not done a twisted easel card in ages, so I went down that path.  The Stamping Boutique is one of their sponsors for this challenge, so head over to the store to see the fun new images Tracey's brewed up. 

I actually started with this designer paper - love the color combo of rose and pumpkin ... From there, because of the dotted dp on the inside of the card, I knew immediately that I wanted to use this bunny image w/the polka dots on the ribbon and egg.  Of course, the inside had to be decorated since it'll be propped open to take advantage of this cute bunny, held in place w/matching button.  I added some orange Stickles to the bow to bring a little bling (and who doesn't like bling?) to this cutie pie.

Love the way this turned out ... I don't know what I'm going to do with all these Easter themed cards, tho, lol, I don't really know THAT many peeps :).
Here's a close up.

Here's the card flat, before setting it up - I finished the panels on top so it looks just as pretty before propping it open.

Thanks for popping in for a look-see!
