MFTWSC234 - Celebrate Pandas



This is my card for the current MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge.



I don't often use animal or people images, but lately I've purchased a few because they're just so darn cute! The Happy Pandas set was one of them, along with the matching dies. I figured an MFT challenge was the perfect place to put them to work, but I also find this sketch a little busy. The result is a card that I like, but doesn't quite feel like me. But pushing ourselves to try new things is how we grow, right? And man, these guys really are cute!

I also used the Celebrate Big set - I feel like the big sentiment works well with the mostly black and white colour scheme.

Adorable! I agree that it's hard to resist all the cute animal and people images that are on the market at the moment.

This is really cute without being cutsey (is that a word???)To me the pandas just highlight the sentiment! X

Happy Dance said...

They sure are cute! And I do see "you" in these sweet little pandas. Still a CAS style, and with the little fellas being mostly white, they retain more of that CAS look. I think you've nailed the sketch. Very, very cute little critters. Great and fun card! Bev

I really like what you have created here! Personally, I think that limiting the colors to a nice simple B & W with a splash of green maintains a nice, clean look!

These wee critters really are cute!

Yep, these panda's are so sweet, Ardyth ... a touch of them (being adorable!) and a touch of you (black and white with the pops of colour ... and that big sentiment!) makes for clean, crisp and definitely cute! Fun! Bisous, Anita :)

Joyce said...

This is really cute, and to me, it still looks like you--just a little different, but mostly you. You did a great job of simplifying a busy sketch and still making a card that has your signature personality.
