Vintage bunny and Papermania Parisienne Blue papers

I love this Papermania Parisienne Blue paper pack I picked up recently; the papers are stunning. Granted, they might not be the type of paper you would normally associate with Easter, but I couldn't resist breaking them in.

The bunny image is from an old book I have called Les Animaux Vivants. There's no publication date for this edition, but I'd say probably the 1920's from the look of it. I scanned this little guy, added the sentiment and printed him out on vintage look paper. By the way, that's not a button sitting pretty there on the ribbon, but an earring. I've used its mate on this card here (also blue and white).

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
