Hi there!  Hope you've had a good week and you have fun plans for the weekend!  I am a bit late with my DT post for this week's Alcohol Markers Challenge at The Outlawz site.  Our theme this week is "Wild West/Rodeo".  I am sure you can come up with some fun images to color up for this theme!  Please be sure you've used alcohol markers (any brand) on your project.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Perfect Plum and the patterned papers are from the Webster's Pages Western Romance and Hollywood Vogue Petite Papers packs.  The fun image is from a digi set called Horsing Around from Bombshell Stamps, our sponsor for this month's challenges.  I was generously provided with this image for the challenge.  I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added Eucalyptus and Gold Stickles to her boots.    The sentiment is from the same Bombshell set.  I colored it with Copics and added Stickles to make it sparkle!   I finished my card with some brown gingham ribbon and a metal star charm tied with twine.

Here is a close-up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Alcohol Markers Challenge and check out the super fun creations from the rest of the DT!  We hope you will play along!  One randomly-selected participant in the July challenges will win a great prize from Bombshell Stamps!   There are also lots of fantastic site-wide prizes up for grabs when you enter the challenges at The Outlawz!  

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Sunday Sketch & Stamp #164 (Joni's sketch)
Through The Craftroom Door Challenge (anything goes)
Tammy's Scrapin' Corner #70 (animals)
Divas by Design (use a charm)

Here is the sketch:
Have a great evening!  I am home now, but it might take me awhile to settle in and get by to visit.  I will as soon as I can. Many thanks for all your kind comments and support while I've been gone.
