CONGRATS to all the lucky winners!!  It was fun seeing so many new cards this challenge and they all looked awesome.  Love seeing so many different styles and fun designs!!

I am working on a card today, that is colored with Copics, but has a Mixe d Media background?  Is that OKAY for this challenge, or the does the background need to be created with Copics???
