Embossed, Gold Leafed, Die Cut Booklet Card is held together with a pink satin ribbon. Each page has beautiful artwork.  The card reads: "The Light of Dawn.  "The center of the card reads: "See the land, her Easter keeping, Rises as her Maker rose.  Seeds, so long in darkness sleeping, Earth with Heaven above, rejoices; Fields and gardens hail the spring; Shaughs and woodlands ring with voices, While the wild birds build and sing.  You, to whom your Maker granted, Powers to those sweet birds unknown, use the craft of God implanted; Use the reason not your own.  Here, while Heaven and Earth rejoices, Each his Easter tribute bring ~ Work of fingers, chant of voices, Like the birds who build and sing." Charles Kingsley
