Two Challenges!!

I made this card for my youngest son who is leaving for China next week for 3 months as an exchange law student. He has been fascinated with Chinese culture since forever. This will be a dream trip for him. I tried to give this card a Chinese flavor! I got the idea from my Stampin' Up consultant. Of course, I had to change it up and make it my own.

I am entering this card in Scrapmaster's Paradise Color Challenge #134. It calls for us to use the following color combo.

I am also entering it in Pink By Design's Have a Heart Challenge. This challenge wants us to use a heart somewhere on the project.

To make this card I used my Cameo to cut the small panda holding the heart. I just got my Cameo and so far I am loving it. I still have a long ways to go to use it to it's full potential. It cuts soooo much better than my Cricut (especially on small detailed cuts). The bigger panda and the bamboo were cut with my Cricut using the Pagoda cartridge.  The border down the left side of the card was made with a Martha Stewart punch and I used little green Candies inside the circles. The banner was made with SP & Company's Stitchery Doo Banners and the sentiment with the letters from the SP & Company's Tiny Build a Banner set. I just love how you can mix and match Sami's stamp sets. I pop dotted the banner for some dimension which doesn't show up to well in the picture.

I hope you like it!!!
