Bamboo Birthday

This week I decided to make a birthday card using  MFT Sketch Challenge #497.  I pulled out my favorite panda stamps and scissors and set about stamping and fussy-cutting bamboo.  I don't own the polaroid-style die from My Favorite Things or any of their adorable party animal stamps (yet), so I created my own mini frame.  It was a challenge to get the inside corners cut clean with my paper trimmer, so I simply used some bamboo pieces to hide the imperfections.  Looking at it now that it's done, I wish I had added more embossed bamboo to the right upper side of the green background, but I don't know if it's worth taking the whole card apart to redo, is it?  I might . . .  

My Favorite Things Happy Pandas,  Cuttlebug embossing folder from Oriental Weave set, Stampin' Up Wild Wasabi,  Creamy Caramel, Basic Black, Whisper White card stock and /or ink, PSX detail white embossing powder, The Paperie Shoppe double-sided foam tape and miscellaneous dies.
