Easter Treats Easel Card

Good afternoon not so nice as yesterday cold bitter wind,so my daughter informs me snow by end week!Here's me thinking spring had arrived.
Well it has in my craftroom every year for Easter i usually make homemade treats and need new holders.Last year it was Easter baskets so this year wanted to try something new.
So i have incorporated an easel card into a treat holder.I can hear you sounds yuck but i am pleased with the end result.Love to know what you think.
The cardstock is all SU ,the D/Papers springtime forever friends.the sentiment is from the same set also.
I have had to take various piccys so you can get the idea .The ribbon ive used is from forever friends springtime collection.The Easter we sign is from last years stock.the flowers are punched in felt and ive added gem.The centres made using nesties die cuts,round punch ,and small ovals.
The yellow candy buttons from reflections
Here you can actually see the side view of the easel card .

This is side view again showing where the treats are hiding in the easel card
so you get card and prezzie in one!

Here's showing the back side of easel card with the treats speckled Chocolate eggs .I have also added sentiment from the forever Friends springtime collection.
