Happy Easter Emily

I have made this card for my gorgeous granddaughter Emily. The image is from lacy sunshine and the image is called Emily Bunnies, thats why i thought she would be thrilled with it having her name. Colored with graphit markers. Backing papers from joanna sheen cardmakers year. The die cuts are bits i had lying around. Ribbons from Julias crafts at consett, co Durham. Flowers from wild orchid crafts. I printed the sentiment out on the computer.
