Alcohol Markers Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope your week has been great and you have fun plans for the weekend!  You already know what I am doing - trying to finish and mail my Christmas cards!  Yes, I am on a mission and if I have to stay up all night, they will be in the mail tomorrow.  At least I hope so!  Anyway, I am here now with my DT card for this week's Alcohol Markers Challenge at The Outlawz.  We have a color challenge for you this week, using a wonderful inspiration piece from Design Seeds.

Here is the color inspiration:

Here is my card:

My card base aand mats are SU Cherry Cobbler and the patterned papers are from the American Crafts Merry Mint 6x6 pad.  The adorable image is Christmas Pud from Time For Tea Designs. Jo generously provided the DT with some holiday images to use for the challenges. I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added some glitter to the trim on her hat and the tassels on her boots, Liquid Applique to the icing on the pudding and Glossy Accents to the berries.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A few stars punched from glitter paper finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Alcohol Markers Challenge and check out the wonderful creations from the rest of the DT.  We hope you will play along this week!  The December challenges are sponsored by Time For Tea Designs and one lucky participant in this month's challenges will win their choice of three digis from Jo's Time For Tea Etsy shop.  There are also lots of site-wide prizes up for grabs when you enter the challenges at The Outlawz!
