Alcohol Markers Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a great week and you have fun plans for the weekend!  I get to see some dear friends that I haven't seen in almost two years, so I am really looking forward to the weekend!  First things first, though.  I am here to share my DT card for this week's Alcohol Markers Challenge at The Outlawz site.  This week we have a color inspiration challenge for you.  We've never done one for this challenge, so we thought it would be fun.

Here is the photo we have for inspiration:

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Baja Breeze and the patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Kate & Co. Cambridge and Collectable Unforgettable 6x6 pads.  My cute image is Fairy Wishes from Saturated Canary for Little Darlings Rubber Stamps.  She was another kind gift from my teammie, Tress when I won her blog candy awhile back.  I stamped her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A satin bow and a few gems from my stash finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Alcohol Markers Challenge and check out the gorgeous makes from the rest of the DT!  We hope you will play along!  The August challenges are being generously sponsored by our own teammie, Dawn, who is offering the winner three digis of their choice from her Etsy shop, LilyPinkScraps.  She has some fab digis, so you won't want to miss out being in the running for this great prize!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Through The Craftroom Door Challenge (anything goes)
Saturated Canary Challenge #50 (winged things)
Sweet Sketch Wednesday #219 (sketch)

Here is SSW-219:
