Thank you Dawn, for the sweet Empty Calorie challenge! Some of my best Easter memories as a child were the hollow chocolate bunnies somehow magically found their way into my Easter Basket. I couldn't help but dig out this 1991 Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers moveable stamp. You can raise and lower the lid and the lil' rabbit will hide away in the bottom of the box. There are 3 parts to this stamp.
I used a tiny bit of Basic Grey Koshi purple to paper piece the bow on the boxtop and coming through the side. The box is stamped on PTI white cs and colored with Copics. The rabbit has a pearl necklace.
This card also very skinny qualifies for the Ways to Use it WT420 gingham. Thank you Linda for the challenge...you'd think there would be quite a gingham stash...I mean, who doesn't love gingham...it's cheery, happy, reminds me of being a child, going on a pic-nic...you'd think one would have lots of gingham to choose from. Least I thought...I finally found this teeny, tiny pink and black ribbon. Mama Rabbit is looking at it and thinking...it doesn't even go with my color scheme.
Have a blessed Easter. Thank you for stopping by.

LOL at what Mama Rabbit is thinking about the ribbon. I think it goes well! I love the idea that you can raise and lower the lid on the little "box" - and her pearl necklace.
I must say I'm not too fond of gingham - it reminds me of sewing lessons in school when I'd already been making some of my clothes for 5 years. I was so bored!! Houndstooth, now - that's a different story. I had a lovely Red-Riding-Hood type cape my mother made me when I was 5 in a red and white wool houndstooth.
