Here’s a card that I made this morning for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge 318. I missed the upload window, but I love the card design and decided to play along anyway.  The little panda is from the Panda Party  stamp set that is free with a $50 purchase during Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-A-Bration going on now.

The card base is Pool Party cardstock. I stamped the little sprinkles from Balloon Adventures with Versamark ink for a tonal effect. The ribbon behind the panda is a strip of Whole Lot of Lovely DSP.  I cut out the panda after I stamped him and adhered him to a mat of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper framed with Basic Black cardstock.  He is only holding one balloon in the stamp set, but he seemed to want another one to hold, so I stamped and cut out a second one, tucking the string under his paw.

Check out the Panda Party set. It’s so versatile that I know I will be reaching for it often!
