Midway Reminder at Simply Magnolia-"Embossing (wet or dry)"

Happy Sunday dear blogging friends and welcome to my second post of the day!!

For my very FIRST Totally Tilda post of earlier today please go HERE!!!

I'm here today with a midway reminder to come on over and join us at Simply Magnolia!!!  You still have until 12 pm. (GMT) Saturday...April 4th! Our winner for this challenge will win a Guest Designer spot...we'd love for you to join us!!

Now for me this challenge is a super easy one as I LOVE embossing...both wet and dry...but especially the wet as it means that I get to use my beloved Frantage!!!!!  I decided to make an Easter card for my darling Granddaughter Mia!!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
I made an envelope style card with an insert...
 the card using "Tilda with Inez the Bunny" from the Animal of the Year 2014 collection...
I coloured them with my distress re-inkers...
the DP is Maja from the Sofiero Collection...
then added a heart/lace border using a Martha Stewart punch...
Tilda is matted on two Go Kreate dies...#360030 & #120030... 
 closer view...
I tucked some cheesecloth around the edges of the smaller die cut...
 the top of the card close up...
"Happy Easter" is Hero Arts...
 the stick pin runs through a lace crocheted heart...
I added some small blue beads, chiffon ribbon, shabby seam binding and a rabbit charm...
the banner die is Spellbinders Large Banners...
 for the insert I ran a piece of the same Maja paper through a Cuddlebug script embossing folder...
this is "Little Hoppy" sorry not sure what collection...
I added some more lace and a small flower arrangement...
and of course Frantage!!!...
the pull for the insert I made with ribbon seam binding and crystal strand...
 closer view...
the sentiment is a Magnolia stamp from the Hoppy Easter 2010 collection...
 and this is the back of the insert...
you can just make ou the script writing embossed on it...
I will add our personalized sentiment to it for Easter...
