Three Challenges in One...Again!

I'd love to have the time to make a separate card for every challenge, but only having the time to craft at the weekends, means that I always end up combining. This card is for 3 challenges: I've used the sketch for this week's Just Christmas & Birthday Cards challenge; which fitted perfectly with the BasicGrey Challenge theme of 'Pockets'; and as it looks the bunnies are magically appearing (a stretch...I know! lol), I'm also entering this for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge which is 'Animal Magic'.
The images I've used are from the Penny Black stamp 'Bunny Friends' - I masked of most of the stamp, so that I could used these smaller images. All of the papers are from the BasicGrey 'Blush' range, the flowers are a mixture of Poppicrafts, and Sarah's Cards Ltd, the lace raffia is from Hobbycraft, and all the brads are by Papermania.
Here's a view of the card with the tab in the pocket:

And with the tab removed:

I thought the raffia kind of looks like the bunnies are talking over a picket fence.

Wow, such a gorgeous card, Helen. It must be great to combine different challenges in one card! I am hopeless at combining like that.

Thanks for joining the JCBC this week.
