Friday Coloring Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday! Hope you've had a good week and you have fun plans for the weekend!  We have a fun event coming up on Saturday if it doesn't get rained out.  We finally got some much needed rain last night, but because of the heat, everything dried back up again right away. Maybe we will get a little more in the next few days.  Anyway, before getting on with the day, I am here with my DT post for this week's Friday Coloring Challenge at The Outlawz site.  The theme this week is "picnic or barbecue".  You may now use any coloring medium you'd like, but you must still have a colored image on your project.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are GKD Blue Denim and the patterned paper is from the Webster's Pages Citrus Squeeze collection.  The fun barbecue image is Big Guy Grilling from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I printed it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added some Washi Tape strips in the upper right corner and a bit of Baker's Twine to finish my card. I've got a birthday sentiment inside for special family member. 

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 fantastic creations from my teammies, Dawn, Penny and Kathi!  We hope you will play along!  We've got a great sponsor for August.  Bombshell Stamps is offering the winner a digi set of their choice.  You'll love their fun retro and vintage images!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
