Some Easter Fun

There is a challenge at Sweet Pea Stamps to use the wrappers from your Easter Candy in creating a card. This got my brain working in overdrive and was FUN!

As you can see, I used the wrappers from the pastel wrapped Hershey Miniatures all cut up and created a mosaic background.  The image is by Elaine Cox  on Plate #52 called Flower Tail Mermaid.  It is beautiful anytime, but the bunny just make it perfect for Easter to me.
