Hi, Everyone! I am wearing my MFP/OSC design team hat bringing you some inspiration for  sketch #28.  All I can say is that I must be thinking of St. Patrick's Day because this card is green, green, green! I used the Pandas stamp set, dry embossing and 3 different embossing folders.  I cut and alternated paint chip strips to give it a bamboo feel and pop dots were used to lift the layers.  You can see more of the set HERE.

And here's the sketch to follow for the challenge:

I hope you will join us and give us a chance to see your oriental-themed creativity!

I will enter my little panda in these challenges:
