Never Give Up

Today I'm joining Team D on the Colour Crazy Challenge blog to add my card creation in with theirs. 

Lee Holland is one of my favorite artists from his Whimsy Stamp days and I just love this 'Panda on a Branch' image he provided our team.  

I used my Copic markers for coloring and then die cut the edges with Carnations Crafts Pretty Shabby Square Labels die set. The sentiment is hand stamped and is from Creative Time, You Matter. 

 I made the overall card 4 1/2" square, covered the front with the brown swiss dotted paper and then secured the image to the card front.  Lastly I added the light green narrow organza ribbon and bow, that coordinates with the leaves, so that it crossed near the end of the limb.  He's all ready to be mailed and brighten someone's day!
