I decided to use Unity Stamp Company Panda bundle pack- well 2 of the pack for this card. I stamped them both with Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink on typing paper. The card base is Recollections White 4" x 5.5" Value Pack Cards and Envelopes. The background paper reminds me of bamboo and is from Basic Grey Saturday Morning 6" x 6 " paper pad. I colored in the panda's eyes, bird, and the bird's beak with NPW 50/50 Two Tones Colored Pencils. You can barely tell the beak is yellow because of the ink, but it is faintly colored in. The silver washi tape strip is from Recollections Craft It washi tape. The twine on the spine of the card is Watermelon Sorbet from Timeless Twine, but the shop is closed, but I think Annie's Paper Boutique Pink Limeade is very similar to it. Now for the inside.

I used Gina K Designs My Anchor- well at least one stamp from the set- for the sentiment inside. I stamped it with Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink as well. I won a 50% off gift certificate when I attended Stamp and Scrapbook Expo at Mesa, AZ this past September. This is the first stamp I have used of the set, shocking I know, I usually have new stamps inked up and used by now. I'm saving this set for the right moment to make cards or layouts with it. If you ever get to go to a Stamp and Scrapbook Expo, go! I learned a lot and met a lot of new friends plus you win prizes depending on the workshops you take. I got to see the Grand Canyon the day afterwards and can't wait to go back to Arizona!

 I'm the last stop on the hop so I hope you enjoyed the hop!

Here's our line up in case you get lost along the way.
