Cute as a panda

Another stamp that I had to dust off . . . I'm trying to use more of my "oldies but goodies" . . . this is a Crafter's Companion rubber stamp (the image and also the verse) -- yeah, remember rubber -- still my most favorite to use, although not as popular these days with so many digitals to choose from, which are less costly.
This is colored with prisma pencils (I'm too cheap to spring for Copics - lol), a touch of Wink of Stella applied to the flowers, the lace was some I was given by a friend, and then I threaded blue dotted swiss ribbon through it -- I love how it turned out, so will be on the look-out to find more of this awesome lace!
