Last week, our precious grandson, Enzo, turned one year old! To honor this important milestone, our daughter and son-in-law threw what they called Enzo's First Fiesta. Sarah, Enzo's mom, spent weeks getting ready for the party, creating wonderful decorations and special exquisite cookies. The Fiesta was held last weekend.

To accompany Enzo's birthday gift, I made this panda card:

I tried to make it as colorful and festive looking as I possibly could, so used a rainbow of colors. And, of course, I had to use one of the darling pandas from the Party Pandas Sale-A-Bration set, as I did for the Valentine in my PREVIOUS POST. I find these pandas to be completely irresistible. (There are three pandas in the set, so I have yet to use one of them. Stay tuned!)

I wanted to make the inside of the card just as festive and colorful 
as the card's front:

The balloon and the party hat the panda is wearing were both fussy cut.

On Monday, when I have my February Stamp-In Workshop, my girls are going to be making a card that is similar to this. When I share the tutorial for that card, I will explain how the card front was done.

Happy Birthday, Enzo!
