Mom's B-day and Papertake Weekly Challenge

Here's a card I made for my mom's birthday, which also fits in with this week's "Elegant Embossing" challenge at Papertake Weekly. Isn't this Tilda just beautiful! My mother loves roses and my girls look so much like this Tilda that I thought it was just the perfect stamp. I purchased the Magnolia stamp from Phebe at the Town Scrapper of course. She just received a new shipment of Magnolias so give her a call as they're going fast.

CS, DP and ribbon is all SU. I used the Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots embossing folder as well as Spellbinder scallop die. The Magnolia was stamped with Archival Brilliance Graphite Black ink onto Wausau paper and coloured with Copics. For embellishments, I used the Sakura gel pen to add sparkle to her wing, Prima flower and Robin's Nest bauble.

It's been a long week and I don't know about you but I'm looking forward to the weekend.
