Friday Coloring Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you had a good week and you have fun plans for the upcoming weekend!  I'm looking forward to a little extra down time this Memorial Day weekend.  Right now I am here with my DT post for this week's Friday Coloring Challenge at The Outlawz site.  The theme this week is "music".  It can be anything to do with music, but you must have a hand-colored image somewhere on your project.  You can use any coloring medium you'd like.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Basic Black and the patterned papers are from the Prima Lyric collection.  The beautiful image is Melody by Joanne Schempp.  It was available previously from Sweet Pea Stamps, but I don't see it in the shop right now, so it must be retired.  I colored it with my Copics and added a bit of Diamond Stickles to the little fairy's wings and Liquid Pearls around the flowers in her hair.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A triple-loop seam binding bow and a Wild Orchid Crafts rose 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 stunning creations from the rest of the DT!  We hope you will play along!  Our wonderful sponsor for May is Sweet Pea Stamps, who are offering the lucky winner 3 digis of their choice from the Sweet Pea Stamps online store. They have so many gorgeous digis from over 30 super-talented artists!
