Friends Bloom in Color

This is my card for the monthly card swap with my fellow stampers here at work. This months theme was get well/sympathy. However, I think my card falls more into the "Thinking of You" category. The sentiment inspired the design of this card. I wanted the flower to be the focal point and the only thing in color. So who better to hold the flower than this cute little Panda! No coloring there - I think he's perfect. He looked like he had his hand (paw) behind his back so I stamped him first and then masked him and added the flower to look like he was holding it. I decided to add a bit more color with the ribbon and button in coordinating colors of the flower. The layout of the card was loosely taken from this weeks SFYTT. TFL.

Stamps: Panda - Inkadinkado, Flower and sentiment - Anna Wight/Whipper Snapper
Paper: Cardstock SU!
Ink: Staz On - Black, SU! Markers
Accessories: Cuttlebug embossing foloder, buttons - PaperStudio, ribbon/hemp - Michaels


  1. The cute little panda really does look like he's holding a flower ready to give away to someone deserving. And I like your cuttlebug background. It goes so nicely with the card.

  2. As always, I love it. I especially like the blue shadow around the image.
