Seven Already!!

Hi all.  My niece's daughter just turned 7.  She is a smart and talented little girl.  She is an animal lover, just like her mom, so I thought this adorable panda would make a cute card.  I used the Try Stampin' On Tuesday Challenge #360 for my inspiration.

Card Base:  Sahara Sand CS cut at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2"; score at 4-1/4".  Added a piece of retired dsp (don't remember the name).  On top of that is a piece of retired Mint Macaron CS.  Each end of a strip of Melon Mambo CS was clipped and then added to the card.

Image Layer:  I stamped the panda with the balloon from the Party Pandas Stamp Set with Black Archival Ink on Whisper White CS.  Before stamping I covered the balloon and string so they wouldn't stamp.  I cut this out using the Layering Squares Framelits.  I made a frame for the image using Crushed Curry CS and the Layering Squares Framelits using a regular square and a scalloped square.  The image was attached to a larger piece of Whisper White CS and the frame added.  I attached it to the card with Dimensionals.  I cut a rectangle shape from the same dsp, added thin strips of Melon Mambo and a bow cut using the Christmas Stocking Thinlits.  It was added with Mini Dimensionals.

The Finishing Touch:  Crushed Curry hearts from the Regals Enamel Shapes were added to say we love you.

I hope you enjoyed today's card.  Have a wonderful day.
