Ok onto my card creation for the hop now...

I used Victory Kid (one of the stamps in the selection for the grand prize) for my card and colored him using Copics. DP is from Basic Greys Oxford Collection. Sentiments are from the Adventure Mini Postage Stamps (also in in the selection for the grand prize).

I also decorated the inside to mach the outside. Sentiment is from the Party Mini Letter Seals.

Here is a list of Copics I used: 
Skin: E000-00-11-21
Hair: E31-35-YR20
Shirt: E70-71-74-77-79
Pants: BG70-72-75-78
Shoes & hat: E09-95-97-R59, W0-1-3-5-7
Outline/Shadows: B41-32-0000 & N0-1-3-5

Thank you so much for hopping with us today and we hope you enjoy all of the DT creations!
