Copic/ProMarker Challenge and Something Fun!

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a good week and your weekend is shaping up to be a fun one!  I am thinking of my friends and family who may be in the path of the latest rounds of strong storms.  Stay safe, everyone.  I am here to share my DT card for this week's Copic/ProMarker Challenge (now called Alcohol Marker Challenge) on The Outlawz site.  This week's theme is "school's out/graduation".  The theme is open to your interpretation, but please remember you must have some coloring with alcohol markers (any brand).

I've also got something exciting to share today!  We've got a new feature starting today over on the Little Miss Muffet Challenge blog.  Barbara is starting up "Friday Freebies" beginning today!  She will be providing a new freebie every Friday and some members of the DT will share their projects with the freebie for your inspiration.  Head on over to the Little Miss Muffet Challenge blog and check out the first Friday Freebie and find out how you can get the cute new image for yourself!

On to my card, which is for both the Alcohol Marker Challenge and the Friday Freebie:

My card base and mats are SU Basic Black and the patterned papers are from the Trinity Paper Arts Sincerely collection.  The adorable image is this week's Little Miss Muffet Friday Freebie, Amelie (Back).  She is new in the Polka Dot Pals range. I printed her on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added some white highlights to the polka dots on her bow with my Sharpie White Paint Pen and some Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pen accents to the Spellbinders Floral Oval frame.  I kept the layout and embellishments simple, adding only a burgundy satin bow and a little metal clock charm from Miriam's Crafting Supplies. It's another from the bag of goodies I won from Miriam when I won a recent challenge she sponsored.

Here is a close-up of the cute image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Alcohol Marker Challenge and check out the fantastic creations from the rest of the DT!  We hope you will play along!  This month's challenge are being sponsored by Digistamps4Joy.  One randomly-selected participant in June's challenges will win 5 digis of their choice from Digistamps4Joy.  There are also lots of great site-wide prizes up for grabs when you enter the challenges at The Outlawz.
