Bamboo - A flower for you

Hi everyone, I've managed to assemble the card I started a few days ago, before the Fibromyalgia flared. It's for my daughter to give to one of her friends and is from the Party Paws range from Crafters Companion. I just had to get this stamp (and a few more...) as my daughter adores Pandas...and they're just sooo cute! Here's what I came up with...

I've coloured with copics and have layered up the flower, his hands and the's a close up...

The backing paper is from Wild Rose (Girly polka dots) and has been distressed at the edges with a Tim Holtz tool. The image has been displayed on a Spellbinder Decorative label 22. The sentiment, which came with the image, has been displayed on a Spellbinder Timeless Rectangle. I've added a flower to complement the one in the image, adding a Cheery Lynn Tropical Flourish, which has been snipped and rearranged slightly. I popped a heart shaped doily (from The Hobby House) behind the image and a double bow and card candi to finish. I really pleased how this turned out, especially the little Panda. Hope you like it too.

I would like to enter this for the following:-
