April CAS Mix Up Challenge - Mid Month Reminder!

Here's my post for the Mid Month reminder of the April CAS Mix Up Challenge!  We're using Inlaid Die cutting along with stamping and your choice of another media.
I made another Easter card for this month's challenge - just in time right???!!!  
I -  1) stamped the egg, 2) inlaid the die cut egg and die cut bunny, and 3) my choices - die cut the panel with a stitched edge die, used Wink of Stella, a black pearl, and die cut tissue grass
I die cut the egg out of a white card panel that I had cut with a stitched edge die.  
I stamped this beautiful egg on the white egg die cut.  Then I die cut the bunny out of the center of the stamped egg.  At this point, I adhered the white panel onto the white card base.
I die cut the bunny again out of a piece of brown Color Core Cordinations and sanded the edges so the red showed through.  I die cut the bow out of Hibiscus Burst card and brushed it with Clear Wink of Stella for a little glitter!
I inlaid the bunny on the egg (she pops up a bit as I layered it onto the piece I cut out of the egg), adhered the bow, and added her black pearl eye.  I die cut some grass out of green tissue using a fringe border die and adhered two layers of  it over the bottom of the bunny.
You have until April 24th to link up your inlaid die cut cards!  You'll find the challenge rules, video links to Inlaid Die cutting methods and wonderful inspiration from the Design Team here.

Julia, your card is perfect for Easter! I love the 'chocolate' bunny and the grass that shows off that beautiful egg! I had a sneak peek at your felt journal, but will have to come back to really absorb all the details. Sneaking a few minutes before I start dinner. Thank you for all your really sweet comments on my blog! They make me smile from ear to ear! Have a blessed Easter! Hugs!
