Alcohol Markers Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you had a great week and like me, you have fun plans for the weekend!  I am enjoying time with close friends again this weekend, so I won't have much time on the computer, but I've got a few things pre-posted so if Mr. Blogger cooperates, you will still be seeing my cards.  Today I am sharing my DT card for this week's Alcohol Markers Challenge at The Outlawz.  The theme this week is "back to school".  You can interpret the theme as you wish, but your project must have coloring with alcohol markers (any brand).  The kids are already back to school in my neighborhood.  Seems strange to see the buses again!  Wasn't it just June?

Here is my back-to-school card:

My card base and mats are SU Pool Party and the patterned papers are from the Echo Park Bundle of Joy Boy 6x6 pad.  The adorable image is Dundee from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I printed him on MiC Blending Card and colored him with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  It is part of the Hurray, Hurray School Today set in Paulette's store here.  A couple of buttons from my stash with Lucky Limeade Baker's Twine bows 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 fun creations from the rest of the DT!  We hope you will play along this week!  Our August challenges are being sponsored by our very own DT sistah, Dawn.  Dawn is offering the random winner three digis from her LilyPinkScraps Etsy shop.  She has some fantastic digis to choose from!  There are also terrific site-wide prizes up for grab when you enter the challenges at The Outlawz.
