Hi. everyone!  I am still on the Asian-themed cards, and this time I made a masculine card featuring a panda.  I got the beautiful image from Tidbits Trinkets Images and then coloured with my Prismacolor pencils.

Here are the other supplies used:

  • Dies:  Nellie's Multiframe Squares and Circles
  • Punch:  Marvy Uchida Dragonfly
  • Asian patterned paper:  Ink and Whimsy (won in a challenge - thank you!)
