Friend Card

I got the new Pagoda cartridge for Christmas and I was dying to try it out.  I thought it would work perfectly for the current Just Buggin challenge to use the shadow or blackout feature on your die cut.

The panda, umbrella, and kanji character are all cut from the Pagoda cartridge.  I added a shadow to the panda and the character which actually means friend.  What's more friendly than a cute panda holding a pink umbrella?  I embossed the umbrella with my cuttlebug to make it look like it had a pattern on it.  I used the same embossing folder ( I think it's moroccan screen or something like that) over on the side.  I thought this green paper would go well with the panda because it reminded me of bamboo.  I finished the card off with some ribbon and of course googly eyes for the panda.  We would love to see what you can come up with for this challenge.  Head over to Just Buggin and link your project before Wednesday!!!!

Okay, I read your post and between the time I clicked on your name and the time that I commented, I had forgotten that you were on the DT. Now I'm really embarrassed!!!
