Mother's Day Card

Hi everyone!
Since everybody seems to have celebrated Mother's Day, I thought I should make a Mother's Day card although our equivalent feast here in Romania would be "Woman's Day" and that was on the 8th of March. Still, a card for mother is always welcome and I really wanted to ink up my Tilda with straw hat stamp which was the first one I fell in love with from the new collection before loving them all...lol. First I thought I should make a scene with lots of flowers but realized I wanted something simple and cute. Hope you like it:



Recipe:
Stamp: Magnolia- Tilda with straw hat
Coloring medium: Promarkers
DP: Echo Park - For the Record- digital from Jessica Sprague
Embellishments: flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, lace from stash, ribbon from The Ribbon Girl, pearls and charm from Bunny Zoe, stickles
Dies: Magnolia Doohikey flower die (border), Marianne Design forest branch, Martha Stewart butterfly, oval Sizzix die
Sentiment: freebie from here
