Oriental Panda Hello Card w/ gems

Created this Oriental card using a sketch which you can see below. Embossed with a Darice Bamboo embossing folder to complement the imaginisce Panda stamp. Used vellum & made circles to be like word bubbles. Used Mark's Finest Papers sentiment stamp on the vellum circles. Added green sparkly gems & twine. One has to be patient with stamping on vellum and using heat tool & dry time so no smudges. Thought about adding wiggle eyes but when I saw that the eyes stamped wonderfully and did not have to alter with any black touchup I did not want to cover the stamped eyes up with wiggle eyes.
