Panda Birthday Brew

Hi, everyone!  I don't know about you, but I can't resist a challenge or linky! I want to support all of them! Last night I saw a new CASE-ing DT link-up over at Coffee Loving Cardmakers and got to work right away to make my card!  The link-up expires today so if you're quick, you can join too!

I've been wanting to play with my new Panda with Cup that I won recently from Little Blue Button Stamps (thank you, Olga!). This panda is just so cute - I love her! I did some quick colouring with Prismacolor pencils and Bic Mark-its and added Glossy Accents over the panda's glasses and over the word die-cut. The patterned paper is full of glitter and sparkle but I'm not sure if you can see it in the photo.

The challenge is to CASE Chaitali's card shown below:

I was inspired by Cupcake Inspirations Sweet Inside challenge to decorate the inside of my card:

Here are the other products used:
  • Clear Stamp:  Newton's Nook Newton Loves Coffee (sentiment on front), Avery Elle Cake and Candles (sentiment on inside)
  • Dies:  Nellie's Multiframe Circles, Gina Marie Designs Stitched Circles, Your Next Stamp Coffee, coffee cup (unlabeled die from China)
  • Patterned paper: DCWV Vintage Collector Stack, DCWV Glitter Stack
  • Other: WRMK Corner Chomper
