Shirley is our hostess over at CCEE Stampers now that it's (already!!) a new month. You can bet she has some fun challenges lined up, starting off with shimmer: you could do embossing with gold or silver, use glimmer mist, sparkly paint, add gems-the possibilities are just endless when you really think about it. If you get all shimmery and glimmery on your card, be sure to link it on the CCEE blog!
For me it was the perfect chance to pull out a new panda stamp - I've been looking for a panda for a long time and finally got this one from Stampendous.
A2 black base

Sabrina, I love this image of your panda and the bamboo. I would certainly hate to think these beautiful bears would ever disappear. Thankfully, people are working to make sure that never happens. Thanks for showing the close up. I'm sure it is shimmering all over irl. Plus, I see you added a gold coin and gold cord for more shimmer. Beautiful card.

That embossing folder does double duty! If you look at the negative, it's birch trees; if you look at the positive, it's bamboo! No matter how you look at it, the colors are fabulous and that little guys is adorable. Love your gold embellie. Gorgeous card, Sabrina!
