Stampin' Up!

Even though I already made something for SP Color Combo Challenge #70, I wanted to take a another shot at it. I liked the challenge of the color combo of black, gray and olive. I started by pulling out a Stampin' Up! panda stamp that Mom had given me, and then decided to add a bamboo cutting file element that I'd designed for an ongoing project. I used a small flower stamp to decorate a pretty olive-colored shimmer cardstock. The paper has a slick yet fabric-y texture and I like how the stamp came out on it. I cut the bamboo on gray paper and traced it with a gel pen. I used the same pen to add more flowers on the frame (made & cut in SCAL2). Since I've been making magic picture cards, I made the little guy move! I love it when it's hiding behind the bamboo...
