Friday Coloring Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a good week and you've got some fun weekend plans.  It's been a very busy week for me and I'm hoping for a little downtime this weekend.  Before heading out for today's appointments, I am here to share my DT card for this week's Friday Coloring Challenge at The Outlawz site.  Since it's the last Friday of the month, the theme is "anything goes" with the option to add a Christmas twist.  The twist is completely optional.  Remember you can now use any coloring medium, but you must still have a colored image on your project.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Mossy Meadow and the patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Christmas 6x6 pad.  The beautiful image is Mistletoe Kiss from Delicious Doodles.  It is also available from Sweet Pea Stamps.  I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A few pearls and a sparkly Christmas tree sticker finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Friday Coloring Challenge and check out the festive projects from my teammies, Dawn, Penny and Kathi!  We hope you will play along this week!  This is the last week to get in on the prize from our July sponsor, All Dressed Up Stamps.  They are offering the winner their choice of 2 digis from the All Dressed Up Stamps Etsy shop.  Wendy's digis are so fun, so be sure to go check them out.
