I don't do bull fights bc I ALWAYS WANT THE BULL TO WIN! Colored him with copic markers and fussy cut him out (didn't get too fussy though!) I tried to keep it masculine which is hard cuz I like girlie swirlie things. Added some gold stickles on his outfit. Thanks to Elizabeth, I have stickles in every color! My patterned paper and bling is from my stash. I embossed with a folder from SU in my Bigshot.
