It's a Panda Bear Birthday!!!

Happy Tuesday!!! Time for a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash and Mimi has picked a perfect theme for the challenge ~~ For the Kids!!! It's perfect for me as my Great Grandson turns one in June and I needed to make a couple of birthday cards and the theme of the party is Teddy Bear Picnic, so I chose to made a Panda bear card.

Although the panda bear stamp is reasonably new all the papers were scraps out of the scrap box, the polka dot piece was an extra base for an ATC card quite a few years ago. As soon as I saw Sketch Saturday I knew it was perfect for my image. The Panda is from the Sale-a-bration promotion in March and was free (with purchase of course)

Since it's his first Birthday I wanted to put the 1 on the card, which ties in with Seize the Birthday's challenge "it's just a number"

I am entering this in:
Sketch Saturday  #513 
Seize the Birthday  ~~ It's just a number (mine is one)

Thanks for stopping by today and for lots of fantastic inspiration head over to the SOS Blog and check out the rest of the design team's projects.

This is adorable, Barbara! The blue theme is perfect, too. So glad you linked this up to Seize the Birthday!

You had me with panda + balloon! I love the way you added a dimensional effect by cutting the balloon out at the edge... it's awesome how something so slight makes such an impact... sigh, isn't paper-crafting with friends great?! Great use of stash papers, Babs.
