Alcohol Markers Challenge - The Outlawz

Hi there!  Happy (very early) Friday! Hope you had a great week and you have fun plans for the weekend!  It's likely to be more of the same for me, since I'm still not that mobile, but hoping it will still be a good time.  I am here early to post my DT card for the Alcohol Markers Challenge at The Outlawz site.   I've got a couple of other fun posts later, so I hope you will pop back if you have time.  Anyway, our theme this week is "anything goes" with the end of the month option to add a Christmas twist.  I try to do this when I can so I can build up my holiday card stash before the press is on. You can do anything you'd like this week, but please remember to have coloring with alcohol markers (any brand).

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Riding Hood Red and the patterned papers are from the Melissa Francis Deck the Halls 6x6 pad.  The beautiful image is Poinsettia Fairy from Delicious Doodles.  I printed it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added lots of Red and Gold Stickles for added sparkle.  Two pretty gold bead caps and a 3D poinsettia sticker 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 creations from my wonderful teammies, Dawn, Penny and Kathi!  We hope you will play along!  It doesn't get easier than "anything goes".  Delicious Doodles is sponsoring the June Challenges.  Teri is offering the lucky winner 4 digis of their choice from her shop.  She has loads of fantastic digis there, so check it out!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
The Corrosive Challenge #202 (favorite coloring medium; mine is Copics)
Left of Center Creative Challenges #34 (use metal;  I used metal bead caps)
Fab 'n' Funky Challenge #222 (Christmas)

Have a great day and hope to see you a little later on.
