Cute card for an Odd Challenge

Hi all. Today I have a card that I made to help use up a pile of scraps from my recent purge.

And I made it to enter in the challenge over at the Some Odd Girl blog – Use 2 complementary colours.
I chose orange & blue, see:

The background is made of 5 patterned paper scraps – I just dug out a bunch that would fit my colour scheme and arranged them in stripes. Amongst others there’s some Making Memories and My Mind’s Eye.
Can’t remember where the die-cut journaling shape came from (sorry) but it makes a good layering panel for my super-cute panda friend, no?

He is a Snag ’ems clear stamp by Imaginisce, heat embossed using WOW embossing *glitter* ‘Black Twinkle’. Yes folks, embossing GLITTER! Embossing *and* sparkle.
In one.
What’s not to like about that?

I like how the orange and sky blue colours make my monochrome (sparkly) panda stand out 😉

Have a good day everyone, and hope you fit in some crafty time!
Hugs, Rx
