When All Else Fails...

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a good week and you're ready for a fun weekend!  For me and the "good week" part, not so much, but I'm definitely ready for the weekend to be here. Before I get on with a busy day, I'm here to post my DT card for this week's Copic/Promarker Challenge at The Outlawz site. This week's theme is "desserts" in honor of National Dessert Day on October 14.  Fun theme, right?  Can't wait to see all the yummy sweets!  The only requirement besides the theme is that you color with alcohol markers (any brand).

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Buckaroo Blue and the patterned papers are from the Prima En Francais 6x6 pad.  My cute image is Frenchie Claudine from Make it Crafty.  I printed her on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added Liquid Applique to the whipped cream and different colored Liquid Pearls to the sprinkles on the ice cream.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  It is from the When All Else Fails set in Paulette's store here.  A few pearls and a triple-loop satin bow finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Copic/Promarker challenge thread and check out the amazingly sweet creations from the rest of the DT.  We hope you'll be inspired to play along!  The October challenges are being generously sponsored by Make it Crafty!  One lucky participant in this month's challenges will win Zoe's awesome new Colouring Techniques With Markers E-Book.  Isn't that a fabulous prize?   There are also lots of monthly site-wide prizes up for grabs when you enter any of the challenges at The Outlawz!
