Friday Coloring Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  It will be happy for me if you see this post on time!  I had to go out of town for a couple of days, so my next two posts will be pre-scheduled.  I won't have much internet access until I'm back home, but I will try to check in occasionally.  Today, I am sharing my DT post for this week's Friday Coloring Challenge at The Outlawz site.  The theme this week is a color inspiration.  You don't have to match the colors exactly, but we want to recognize the color palette on your creation.  You can now use any coloring medium you'd like for the challenge, but you must still have a colored image as part of your project.

Here is the color inspiration, courtesy of Design Seeds:

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Rose Red and the patterned papers are from the Webster's Pages Plum Seed collection.  The adorable image is Jacque With Lily from Art by Mi Ran.  It was generously shared as a freebie when the Facebook group reached 600 members.  I printed it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added some White Gel Pen and Ice White Pearl Pen accents.  The banner was cut with the Party Banner die from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  Two wooden butterflies and a few Wild Orchid Crafts flowers 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 fantastic creations from my teammies, Dawn, Penny and Kathi.  We hope you will play along this week!  For the month of August, we are sponsored by Bombshell Stamps, who are offering the lucky winner one digi set of their choice from the Bombshell Stamps digi collection.
I am entering my card in the following challenges:
The Sketchy Challenges #77 (Sabine's sketch; August theme: butterflies)
