Carpe Diem ♥ Panda

Mitt DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers har en kjempesøt panda dies som motiv for for utfordring #145. Vanligvis dekorerer jeg kortene mine med et akvarellmalt stempelmotiv, men det fins så utrolig mange flotte dies man kan bruke, og jeg har samlet opp ganske så mange av dem gjennom årene ;)

Vi har en ny fantastisk flott sponsor med oss denne gang, Goebie Design! Utrolig flotte og morsomme digitale motiver :) Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema. Velkommen skal du være ♥

Usually I decorate my cards with a watercolored stamp motif, but there are so many gorgeous dies one can use as well. And I've collected SO many up through the years! .. yes I am a hoarder of crafty things .. ;) Here I've used one of my favourite background dies together with this supercute panda die as a motif on my DT-card.

For our #145. challenge at Creative Fingers we have a fabulous new sponsor, Goebie Design! Supercute and fun digital motifs :) As always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations ♥
