Copic/Promarker Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  TGIF!  Hope you've had a good week and have fun plans for the weekend!  It sure was busy around here this week, but I'm looking forward to a quieter weekend and maybe even some crafting time!  If you are looking for my Heartfelt Creations Design Team Alumni post, please click here.  You have until midnight tonight to comment for the chance to win a $25 GC to the Heartfelt Creations store.  Winner will be announced tomorrow by noon.

I'm here now to share my DT card for this week's Copic/Promarker Challenge on The Outlawz site.  The theme this week is Anything Goes/Optional Calendar Page.  As we've done all year on the last Friday of the month, we are offering a free calendar page to download for the challenge.  The link to the page and all the directions for printing it can be found in the CPC thread.  It is completely optional to use the page for the challenge. We were thrilled to be sponsored in April by the talented Mayzy from MayzyArt.  One random winner who has entered our challenges this month will receive 6 digis of their choice from Mayzy's Etsy store.  This is your last week to get in on this fantastic prize!

Here is my card for the challenge:

I started with a card base of GKD Chocolate Brown and layered with patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Two Blush and Bloom 6x6 pads.  My fun image is Shawna With Latte from MayzyArt.  Mayzy generously provided me with this image for the challenge.  You can find her in Mayzy's Etsy store here.  I printed her on Copic X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with Copics.  I cut her out and popped her up on foam tape.  The sentiment is from Paulette at Create With TLC.  I added a few rose gems to finish off my card.

My card is also for Sketch Saturday #204, Craft Your Passion #107 (photo inspiration) and Colour Create #95 (Rose, Kraft and White).

Here is SS-204:

Thanks for stopping by! Sorry for the long post!
