Easter eggs in one basket

I feel like I am just like the stores that as soon as Valentine's is done I already have an Easter card made.  I just can't help it since I just love Mo Manning images and I haven't colored one in some time.  The sentiment and patterned paper is from TLC. I used two of the Lifestyle dies and had to make this one with the frills of lace, ribbon, pearls and flowers.  I actually can't wait to put out my new Pier 1 Easter holiday decorations later today.
