Friday Coloring Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  I hope you have had a great week and you have something fun planned for the weekend.  I've got a very busy weekend in store, so I am hoping the weather cooperates.  I am popping in this morning with my DT card for this week's Friday Coloring Challenge at The Outlawz site.  The theme this week is a "color inspiration".  You don't have to match the colors exactly, but we want to be able to recognize the general color palette we've shared.  As always, you must have a hand-colored image somewhere on your project to enter.

Here is the color inspiration photo:

And here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Blue Bayou and the patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Indie Chic "Citron" 6x6 pad.  The beautiful image is Aurora "Maui Maui" by The East Wind from Sweet Pea Stamps.  I colored her with my Copics.  I added a few Wild Orchid Crafts flowers to finish 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 fantastic projects from my teammies.  We hope you will play along this week.  For the month of August, we are sponsored by the wonderful Sweet Pea Stamps, who are offering the lucky winner 3 digis of their choice from the Sweet Pea Stamps online store.  Be sure to check out all the fabulous digis in their store!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

Have a great weekend and see you soon!


  1. Wow Carla, you did a great job at matching the colors in the inspiration photo. This is a lovely image and you did her proud. Just amazing coloring and your flowers and paper choices just finish everything off nicely. There was a time in my life when I could have worn that outfit, but that was so long ago I hardly remember it. LOL Enjoy your weekend.
