Happy Mother's Day Card

Today I created a Mother's Day card for my mum who will be spending Mother's Day (US) in Scotland with her mum.  It will be strange celebrating without her as we have never been apart for Mother's Day but I'll manage.

I used the super cute Tilda from the new Spring Kit that shipped earlier this month.  I have no idea what her name is but I love her.  I colored her with my copics and although you can't see it in the picture, I used the Copic Spica glitter pens for her petticoat and ruffles.  The DP is from a DCWV stack, the CS, charm, safety pin and sentiment are all from Close To My Heart (CS color taffy), the ribbon was from my stash, and the flowers were from Hobby Lobby.  I took them apart and inserted a brad in the middle instead and then just glue dotted (is that a word??) them down to the leaves then to my card front.

I tried to keep it simple as I will be mailing to the UK but I really do like how it turned out.  I hope you do too!

Inside of card:



Have a Simply Magnolia day!
