Friday Coloring Challenge - The Outlawz

Hi there!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a good week and you have fun plans for the weekend!  I was having a good week until my 3-month-old desktop computer decided to stop working!  I am online with Geek Squad and they are trying to sort it out, but what a big pain!! Meanwhile, I have had to set up an old laptop just so I can check mail and do my post. Anyway, here I am, albeit late, to share my card for this week's Friday Coloring Challenge at The Outlawz. The theme this week is "celebrations".  It can be the celebration of any occasion, but you must have a hand-colored image somewhere on your project. 

Here is my card:

I made a card to celebrate the birth of a friend's baby boy. My card base and mats are SU Baja Breeze and the patterned papers are from the Graphic 45 Little Darlings 8x8 pad.  The sweet image is Mother and Baby Boy by Conie Fong from Sweet Pea Stamps.  I colored it with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A big bow and a handmade heart 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 projects from my teammies, Penny, Kathi, Vannessa and Karen!  We hope you will play along!  For the month of May, we welcome back our fabulous sponsor, Sweet Pea Stamps, who are offering the lucky winner 3 digis of their choice from the Sweet Pea Stamps online store.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Creative Fingers Challenge #79 (anything goes)
MarkerPop Challenge #68 (anything goes)
Digi Sketch Challenge (buttons and bows +/- sketch)
Papertake Weekly (anything goes)

Have a fantastic weekend and see you soon!
