Easter is Egg-Citing!

If you ask me what my favorite holiday is --hands down, it's Christmas.  I think Easter is a close second.  But thinking about it, I just really love holidays..any really almost doesn't matter when all is said and done.  I'm one of those girls that has to have the holiday socks, the holiday movies, the holiday napkins..well you get the idea, lol.  Most of all, I love the constant traditions that I've celebrated as a child and the new ones that I've created with my family over the years.  Speaking about new, this year, Easter will be spent in our new this Easter is definately going to be egg-citing...hehe (I just had to do that, lol).

And on that note, here is my card based on the sketch provided in the current challenge over at Meljen's Designs.
