Friends Forever!

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Hi Everyone!
Happy Monday~I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!! It was gorgeous pretty much all weekend here...... in the mid 70's! It was awesome :) I spent a lot of time outside getting some projects done while my hubby worked on packing and getting ready for his annual fishing trip to Canada.
 I was able to get the deck stained and now working on the gazebo. Hopefully, as long as the weather continues to cooperate.... I should be done by tomorrow! Yippee!

I was even able to squeeze in a little craft time in over the weekend, yeah! I have a fun little birthday card to share with you! I picked up another cute file from 
Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons called Birthday Panda
It's so stinken cute, ha???
I started with a black card base, followed by a base layer panel cut at 4  4 1/2. The background chevron paper is from MME. I also added an additional black panel near the bottom and with a Martha Stewart punch added a fun border. I heat embossed the sentiment with My Creative Time's~Treasured Moments stamp set.
The adorable panda was cut at 3.98 plus the layers and popped this cutie up on a yellow panel which I embossed with the dots folder. I used the negative side and with pop dots adhered the panda in place. I needed a little more pop so I cut another panel of blue just a little bit larger then the yellow.  I cut a balloons at 2 1/4 and 2 1/2 from the Birthday Bash cartridge. I embossed them with the SU chevron folder and tied on some fun Caribbean twine and tied a bow.
For the inside of my card, I used My Craft Spot's Big Words metal die set for the Happy Birthday and the  fun little enamel dots in the corner are from my sweet friend Carri :) I finished with a red crinkle ribbon bow using ribbon from my sweet friend, Karen at Little Scrap Pieces and a fun chevron button I picked up at Michael's.
I am entering this in the following challenges:

2.) Sweet Stamps Blog Challenge #172 Ribbon, Button and/of Bows
