Friday Coloring Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a good week and you have fun plans for the weekend!  My week has been busy and today is no exception.  In fact, this is my first post of two I'll have today.  Even my DT schedule is busy!  Anyway, I am here with my DT card for this week's Friday Coloring Challenge on The Outlawz site.  The theme this week is "angels", in honor of "Be an Angel" Day, which I believe is actually today.  You can use any kind of angel you'd like and any coloring medium, but you must have a colored image on your project.

Here is my angel card:

My card base and mats are SU Soft Sky and the patterned papers are from the Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings 6.5x6.5 pad.  I embossed the middle panel of patterned paper with two Sizzix embossing folders - Air Mail Stamp and Clocks.  The image is Wither by Rebecca Sinz from Sweet Pea Stamps.  I know she is supposed to be a dark angel, but I made her a soft and pretty angel instead.  She is printed on MiC Blending Card and colored with my Copics.    A silk bow and a few pearls from my stash finished my card. 

Here is a close-up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Friday Coloring Challenge and check out the beautiful creations from my teammies, Dawn, Penny and Kathi.  We hope you will play along this week.  We have a terrific sponsor for the August challenges.  Bombshell Stamps is offering the lucky winner a digi set of their choice from the Bombshell Stamps online shop

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Sweet Pea Stampers (embossing, wet or dry)
Loves Rubberstamps Challenge #117 (wings)
Creative Fingers Challenge #46 (anything goes)

Have a great day and I'll see you a little later for this month's Digi Bells blog hop!
