A Panda

Good evening bloggers,

I'm supposed to be ironing (I've even got it switched on) but just wanted to take a couple of minutes to post this.

I've just made a quickie card for 2 challenges ...






CASology and            Retro Sketches



Back in August we had a family trip to Edinburgh Zoo to see the Pandas, so I've used this as my inspiration - well that and the fact this is the only zoo animal stamp I have!



Stamps are Inkadinkado Asian Influences and Asian Characters. Bamboo is stamped in Memento Bamboo Leaves and Panda & Sentiment are black embossed.  Coloured some linen thread with a Promarker and matted onto red card.

Okay dokes, thanks for popping in, see you all later.

Suze, doesn't he look a bit disgruntled lol. I don't know why as it is a fabulous card with just that perfect touch of colour.
You should consider sending this to Edinburgh Zoo.
