Alcohol Markers Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a good week and you have fun plans for the weekend!  It's been quite a trying week here with the weird winter storm, but slowly things are getting back to normal.  Next week they are calling for about 5 days of rain, but at least it won't be so cold.  Anyway, I am here to share my DT card for this week's Alcohol Markers Challenge at The Outlawz site.  Since it's the last week of the month, the theme is the ever-popular "anything goes", with the option to make it a Christmas creation.  Just remember you must have coloring with alcohol markers (any brand) on your project.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Soft Sky and the patterned papers are from the Kaisercraft Enchanted Garden 6.5x6.5 pad.  The gorgeous image is Woman with Gardenia and Pearls by Mitzi Sato-Wiuff from her AuroraWings Etsy shop.  I printed it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added lots of Ice White Pearl Pen accents to the pearls.  The only embellishments were a double-loop satin bow and a shimmery pearl button.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Alcohol Markers Challenge thread and check out the wonderful creations from my teammies, Dawn, Penny and Linda!  We hope you will play along!  It's your last chance to be in the running for the awesome prize Mitzi has offered our winner.  One randomly-selected participant will win a $10 GC to spend on digis in Mitzi's AuroraWings Etsy shop.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Through the Craftroom Door Challenge (anything goes)
Party Time Tuesdays #157 (anything goes)
Cute Card Thursday #306 (something new; I used a new digi I just purchased)

Have a great day and see you soon!
