Panda Says Thanks!

Here's another card made with one of the £1 Helz Cuppleditch stamps I picked up in the Hobby Craft sale, I think the sweet panda is just adorable.
He's been coloured, as always, with Promarkers, the sentiment stamp is from a Papermania set.
The papers I've used are my Mind's Eye, Quite Contrary, I've got hardly any of that stack left and I'm gutted as it is one of my favourite ever paper packs (and believe me I have a lot to choose from!) and what's more it came free with a mag yonks ago.  I inked the edges of the patterned paper with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink and the kraft layers with Walnut Stain.
The big bloom was made with my beloved Woodware punches with a baker's twine threaded button for the centre.  I made a stem from ribbon and added a bow for leaves.  To finish, I added some flower shaped buttons with pearls glued to the middles and some pink pearls.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
