Panda Love

Who doesn't love Panda Bears???  I recently was gifted this sweet set of Panda's-Thanks Lynn! I thought I'd ink it right up and make a card.
  I used a Sketch from Mark's Finest Papers. I added the China banner that was also gifted to my by Paige- along with a huge box of Asian themed stamps and papers!  I used Coordinations Meadow cardstock and sanded the embossed portion for the background (surprise- learned it in a Technique Junkies newsletter).
 
  My daughter is still in China- she has moved from Shenzhen to Jinan. She teaches Social Studies (American) to High School students (in English).  I miss her alot, and making Oriental cards helps me feel more connected to her........

Katie has a Blog- Adventures Abroad if you want to pop over and see what she has been up to : )

Thanks for stopping by!
