My Creative Time Designer's Challenge - Spring Theme with a Die Cut

Welcome to a new My Creative Time's Designer Challenge.   I am thrilled that it is my turn to host!  My Challenge is to make something Spring Related and be sure to have a Die cut  on it somewhere!
I decided this would be my challenge because I NEED the warm weather to get started.  When the end of winter drags on I start to be inneed of some serious outside time!  I thrive on sunshine, green grass and flowers!  I think I can see some of my plants starting to poke up through the soil so I'm sure spring is just about here!
 I used quite a few of Emma's dies on my two projects.  They all go so nicely together!

I layered the "Scallop and Stitched Circle dies" on top of the "Vintage Stitched Label Die".  These made a nice backround for the flower which is from Emma's "Rolled Flower Dies".  Inside the package are Chocolate Covered Sunflower Seeds.  I got them at a local shop and they are delicious!  The packaging was not very pretty so I tore it off and made my own.

I attached the flower with a glue gun so it was sure to stay on securely.  The cute little bunny is a charm attached with some pretty hemp. The bunny die is in "To My Best Peep" stamp and die set. I embossed it with some UTEE for extra durability and shine. 
The flower is sprinkled with some Diamond Dust to give it some sparkle.
I used the banner die from "Chocolate Greetings" to put "Thanks" on the top and the Thanks is from "Chunky Jar Accessories".  The bottom banner is from "Vintage  Stitched Label Dies" and the Sentiment is from "More of My Favorite Sayings".
I used my sewing machine to zigzag stitch aroung the entire card and also to straight stitch the burlap in place.
