Here comes the Easter Bunny, Happy Hopping for HMFMC189

I immediately think of Easter when I think of Spring, don't you?  Here's a card that Ive created with a new weave die for the background. Love how putting these dies together can  mimic the look of  a basket, Ive paired these with this adorable Happy Hoppers Stamp; 
The fabulous panel, background and sentiment tag cuts were all made with these NEWLY launched Creative Expressions quality Craft Dies designed by Sue Wilson.
