Happy Easter Week

I can't believe one week left before Peter Cottontale gets here! Here is a really cute Easter card I cased and made for my great nieces and nephew this week. I used alot of punches and the woodgrain is from Tim Holtz (sorry SU) but love it!  The front measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/4. The back measures 5 1/2 X 5 1/4 and is scored at 1/2" and folded over to hold the card front!
