Christmas Turtle and Dove

I used "Christmas Turtle and Dove" on this card.   Been itchin to make a card with this image.  
Coloured with the following Copics: 
Turtle: W1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, R20 (cheek blush), YG61, YRo9 and YR23 on dots, YG93 on seams between plates.  I wasn't quite happy with it, I wanted him to be more green, so I went over the whole thing ('cept the dots) with G20, 21, and then I liked the colour.  I also used Zero blender for some texture. 
Hats: R20, 22, 24, 27, 29, 46, 59, RV99, Blender 0
Dove: C0, 1, 2, 4
Greens: G24, 28
Background, ground: E40, 41, 43, 33
Beak: E53, 55
White of hats: B000, 60, BV20, V95, C0
