Friday Coloring Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you had a good week and you have fun plans for the upcoming weekend!  We've got a lot going on this weekend so I probably won't be around much.  Hopefully, the weather will clear up and it will be nice for the weekend! Speaking of weather, that is why I am so late posting today!  We've had strong thunderstorms all morning and I didn't want to have the computer on.  They seem to have calmed down now, so hopefully, I'll get this posted and get on with the day. I am here with my DT card for this week's Friday Coloring Challenge at The Outlawz site.  The theme this week is "April/Spring showers".  Very appropriate for my day!  You can use any coloring medium you'd like, but you must have a hand-colored image somewhere on your project to enter.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Ruby Red and the fun patterned papers are from my stash.  Sorry, but I can't remember the brand or collection.  The image is Raining Stars by Elaine Cox from Sweet Pea Stamps.  I colored it with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  Some stitched ribbon, a crocheted flower and a button 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 gorgeous creations from my teammies, Pennyy, Kathi and Laine!  We hope you will play along!  For the month of April, we are sponsored by the wonderful Sweet Pea Stamps, who are offering the lucky winner 4 digis of their choice from the Sweet Pea Stamps online store.  Check them out!
