Robin and Holly

I've got another commissioned card for you today, this time the customer wanted a card for her mum, who loves robins, I hope this fits the bill.
 I went with a large 8x8 card for this one, as the lovely Penny Black stamp is nice and big.  I've coloured it with Promarkers as usual.  The Mum stamp is from Papermania, I heat embossed it with verdigris powder.
The pretty papers are Papermania, Lucy Cromwell, Little Red Robin, I just love them and they match this image perfectly.  I added in a punched holly frame made with a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page set, using dark green pearl paper.
To finish, I added some wide tartan ribbon, a bow, red pearls, and some dark green gems.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -

Allsorts - #229 - Ribbon and Bows
