Friday Coloring Challenge -The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  I hope your week went well and you have some fun and exciting plans for the holiday weekend!  It is dark and rainy here again today.  We are hoping it will be better tomorrow so we can at least check out the local fireworks.  Before getting on with the day, I am here with my DT post for this week's Friday Coloring Challenge at The Outlawz.  The theme this week is "4th of July or patriotic or simply red, white and blue." 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 red, white and blue card:

My card base and mats are SU Real Red and the patterned papers are from the Gina K. Designs Berries and Vines 6x6 paper pack.  The sweet image is Picking Strawberries by Lemon Shortbread from Sweet Pea Stamps.  I colored her with my Copics.  The sentiment was computer-generated.  A fun little ribbon and button embellishment 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 talented teammies, Kathi, Penny, Karen and Vannessa.  We hope you will play along this week!  For the month of July, we welcome back our wonderful sponsor Sweet Pea Stamps, who is offering the lucky winner 3 digis of their choice from the awesome Sweet Pea Stamps store.  You will definitely want to be in the running for this fabulous prize!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Creative Fingers Challenge #86 (anything goes)
MarkerPop Challenge #72 (anything goes)
Sweet Pea Stamps Friends and Fans Progressive Challenge (Part 1)

Have a wonderful day and weekend!  See you soon!
