Casual Easter Card

You can click on the photo to see the details more clearly.
I was just playing around with this one.  I think I am going to put together a little Easter basket for my 2 year old daughter and I thought it would be fun to include a card.  Although I do like this one, I feel like the balance is "off".  I don't think my daughter would notice that, so I'm leaving it as is :)

The chocolate bunny is a Stampin' Up stamp - one that was sold by itself last year.  The clouds are also from Stampin' Up from the Good Neighbors set.  The eggs are all from the cheapie $1 stamps.  The sentiment was built using SP & Company's Mix & Match Sentiments: Basics

The grass is a Martha Stewart punch.  The patterned paper is from DCWV - I think from the Sweet Stack, and was punched with the Fiskars Threading Water Punch. 

I had fun playing with ink, paper, and scissors this morning :)  I know my daughter will get a kick out of it.  Sometimes it's fun to make a "no pressure" kind of a card where if things are crooked or "off" it isn't a big deal.

Love the chocolate bunny! I love that he (or is it s she?) really stands out against all the paler colours in the card.
