Happy Mother's Day Tilda

Happy Hump Day, y'all! Hope everyone is having a fine Wednesday so far! I am stopping by briefly to show you a Mother's Day card I made for my Grandmother In-Law. I am trying to get these whipped out a little early since I have to mail them to PA.
I am submitting this card for Just Magnolia's Anything Goes challenge this week. This is Tilda Holding Lilacs and she is available over at Magnolia-licious. I used some more of my new Basic Grey Going Green DP - one of my favs....I know I say it about all of their paper lines - LOL! I paired it with some more blush blossom & old olive cardstock. I added some Raspberry Fizz Flower Soft to her lilacs. The sentiment is by Great Impressions stamps. I airbrushed the hydrangea's with some R01. The roses are from Prima, the fern punch is Martha Stewart as well as the border punch.
Here is a close-up of this sweet girl. I colored her with Copics and added some glitter to her wings.
This is the inside of the card. I created a panel to write a quick note and then created a pocket for a Barnes & Noble gift card. Mom-Mom is an avid reader, so I know this will get put to good use!
Here are the Copics I used. I did forget to add the ones for her hair and skin so here goes:
Skin - E0000, E000, E00, E11, R20
Hair - E50, E53, E55, E57
Patches - R20, R21, R22, R24
Okay, think I got them all now! I was really tired last night when I took these pics and was too lazy to re-take them! LOL!

Have a great day and be sure to stop by tomorrow to see a new Pink Cat Studio goodie!! ~Tori
