Alcohol Markers Challenge - The Outlawz

Hi, again.  I'm back with a quick post to share my DT card for the new Alcohol Markers Challenge at The Outlawz.  Again this week, because of my schedule, I've decided to post tonight rather than tomorrow morning.  This was a really hard one, I must say.  It's our first challenge without our dear friend, Linda, and it just seems so sad and strange without her.  Anyway, it's the last challenge of the month, so as always, the theme is "anything goes" with the optional Christmas twist.   

Here is my card:

Look at this!  A CAS card from me!  I know it doesn't happen very often, but it's kind of fun to do once in awhile!  I used some scraps from the Carta Bella Christmas Day pad for the pennants.  The adorable image is Fairy Bauble from Make it Crafty.  I printed it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added a bit of Glossy Accents to the holly berries, and although you can't see it well, I added some shimmer to the fairy wings with a Gold Spica pen..  I cut out the image with my Cameo and popped it up on a scalloped circle frame.   The sentiment is from a Flourishes Christmas set, I think, and it's stamped.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Copic Colors:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: YR20, YR24, YR27, E39, E59
Red: R35, R37, R46, R59
Green: YG01, G21, G94, G99
Gold: Y00, Y11, Y15, YR23

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Alcohol Markers Challenge and check out the wonderful creations from the rest of my DT sistahs.  This is your last chance to get in the running for the April prizes.  We are sponsored by Make it Crafty and we have two $10 GCs up for grabs.  One for the randomly-selected winner and a second one for someone who used a Make it Crafty image for their project!  Can I say incentive here?  Get out your favorite MiC stamp and play along this last week!
