  6. This is magazine-worthy, Jenny! Love the bamboo surrounding that adorable balloon-toting panda! The black you achieved makes him really pop! I love how useful the tools are for that. I remember the days of coloring in with a black marker all the spots that didn't ink dark enough! Hugs, Darnell

  7. Wow Jenny - what a darling card! I just love the panda and the EF is just perfect!
