Lucy's Christmas card

Morning all - I hope you are well. I've got a very special card to share with you today - its the one I've made for my daughter Lucy for Christmas - like me she loves Pandas so when I saw this stamp from Crafters companion Mulberry wood collection I just had to have it.

I've followed the sketch from christmas cards with sketches and added the required banners or flags. The image is crafters companion Mulberry Wood and I've coloured it using promarkers. I've added ribbon and liquid pearls and glitter. The card blank is from hunky dory.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
