Merry Bah Humbug!

Hi there!  Well, I have had a bit of a day ('nuff said...) and tomorrow threatens to be no better, so I am here a little early to post my DT card for the Copic/Promarker Challenge on The Outlawz site.  The theme this week is "Bah, Humbug" in honor of National Bah Humbug Day (yes, there is such a thing)!    Think Scrooge, stingy, grumpy, you get the picture!  Take the theme where it leads you, but be sure to use alcohol markers for your coloring.  Any brand is fine.  I must confess, I may have looked a bit like this trying to get my cards done this week!

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Cranberry Crisp and the patterned papers are from the Carta Bella Christmas Day 6x6 pad.    My fun "bah, humbug" image is "Merry Christmas To You, Too..." from Mo's Digital Pencil.  Mo has a couple of Scrooge images, but I love this one!  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 added a bit of Glossy Accents to his glasses and highlighted the metallic knobs with my Letraset Silver Metallic Marker.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  It is part of the Bahhhh Humbug set in Paulette's store here.  Some stitched ribbon and a few adhesive pearls finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:
