Birthday Sundaes Challenge #35

Good morning! It's time for a Birthday Sundaes challenge! 

The challenge for this week is to use a tree on your birthday card.  I had a difficult time coming up with a design for this one.  I was looking through my cartridges and I ran into this tree from Pagoda.  I don't use this cart very much.  The only reason I got it was because it has really pretty cherry blossoms on it, but the more I look at it, the more I realize how cute the designs are.  So I saw this bonsai tree and I instantly thought about changing it into a cherry blossom tree!  I then saw this adorable panda and had to use him too!  

Here is my card.  I showed it to a friend at work and she said that he looked like Kung Fu Panda :) I have to agree with that!

To make the card base I welded the shadow of the tree and the shadow of the panda and then copied and flipped it to make the other side.  I then popped up the bushy parts of the tree, the panda, truffle, and sentiment.

I just got received this stamp set from My Creative Time and it was so perfect for this card.  The little truffle was from this stamp set too.  I am always looking for good birthday sentiments:) After putting this card together I found a little scrap on the floor (typical in my room!) in the shape of a circle that I thought might make it look like he is blowing out his candle.  I finished it up by inking up the edges. 

I am very excited to see what you create for this challenge! Please make sure to visit the Birthday Sundaes DT for more inspiration and enter your card here
