Papertrey Princesses Challenge

I'm so excited to be posting today's Papertrey Princesses challenge! 
I love spring...everything about it - Easter, bunnies, birds, tulips and daffodils, fresh green grass...oh, my!  I could go on and on!!  I won't, but I'll make it the challenge!
To be more specific the challenge is to incorporate an image AND a color that means spring to you into a project of your choice.  If you're up to an extra challenge, I'd love to see lots of non-card projects!  With Easter just six (or so) weeks ago, it would be a great start to some fun Easter projects.
That's what I've done with my projects.  I like to add something fun at each person's place at the table at Easter dinner.  This year I've chosen to make these sweet little boxes.  Isn't it fun that the boxes are the color of chocolate?  I layered a bunny image on a doily cut in kraft (swoon...can't get enough of kraft doilies) and a New Leaf green circle and then added a matching button and ribbon for a fun pop of color.

I think these little boxes will be perfect for a sweet, Easter treat and that they'll look great on the Easter table!
I hope you have fun with this challenge...I can't wait to see your projects!
