Panda to your needs!

Today's card is a birthday card ready for the weekend. My other half's sister's birthday. She recently visited the new Panda's at Edinburgh zoo. I knew I had some Panda images from a few years back, and amazingly I manged to track them down.I've decoupaged the circular image, & placed the others on 3D sticky pads..
The backing sheet has been printed from my pc, & then I have embossed it with one of my sizzix embossing folders. I like to print blocks of colour from the pc, because when you emboss & sand them, the white core shows through from the original paper. It needs to be good quality paper so that it can take the embossing & sanding. It shows the embossing off beautifully :)
It's been a while since my sizzix alphabet has seen the light of day too!
