Thankful For Heroes

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a good week and you are gearing up for a fun weekend!  I've had a lot going on this week and it sure has eaten into my crafting and blogging time.  I'm hoping the weekend brings a little down time for working in my craft room. Before getting going with my day, I'm here to share my DT card for this week's Copic/Promarker Challenge at The Outlawz.  The theme this time is Remembrance Day (tribute to veterans or any other special remembrance).  You must do some coloring with alcohol markers (any brand), but otherwise how you interpret the theme is up to you.

Here is my card:


My card base and mats are GKD Green Apple and the papers are from the Authentique Loyal 6x6 pad.  While not really camouflage, I thought the colors and patterns of the papers still worked with the theme.  My adorable image is Soldier Boy from Mo's Digital Pencil.  You can find him in Mo's store here.  I printed him on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored him with my Copics.  I made the camouflage pattern on his clothes and hat by dabbing with my BG95, BG93 abd BG91 markers. The sentiment is from Paulette at Create With TLC.   A double-loop navy taffeta bow and a few stars punched from green glitter paper finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:


Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Copic/Promarker Challenge and check out the beautiful creations from the rest of the DT!  I am sure you will be inspired to play along.  Our November challenges are being sponsored by Mischelle of That's Fabulous!.  One randomly-selected participant in our challenges will win 3 digis and a paper pack of their choice from That's Fabulous!.  And don't forget there are always lots of fantastic monthly site-wide prizes up for grabs when you enter any of the challenges at The Outlawz.

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Through The Craftroom Door #43 (anything goes)
Sweet Sketch Wednesday #179 (sketch below)
Mo's DP2 Challenge #160 (C is for...camouflage and cute)
The Color Throwdown #217 (black, white, lime and navy)

  4. Oh Carla, great job of coloring the desert uniform he's wearing. Such an adorable card. I'm sure all the veterans or their spouses that see this will thank you, as I do, for acknowledging those that have and do protect our country. "Hug"
