2,000 Member Party - The Outlawz

Hi there!  Are you ready to party?  The date we've all been waiting for is finally here!  It's time for the 2,000 Member Party at The Outlawz site!  It seems like just yesterday that we had our 1,000 member party! We are thrilled to have added another 1,000 members so soon!  You all inspire us with your support and with your creative designs!  To mark this milesone, we are having a huge celebration with lots of fun, games and challenges!  And, as always, we have some awesome prizes from our amazingly generous sponsors!  Be sure to visit The Outlawz site and check out all the exciting events lined up for the party!

I am here to share my DT card for the Copic/Promarker Party Challenge.  Our theme is "where in the world".  We want to see creations that represent where you live now or where you are from originally.  Either one, it's up to you!  Of course, you need to include an image that has been colored with Copics, Promarkers or some other alcohol-based marker.

Here is my card:

Although I live in Alabama now, I was born and raised in Massachusetts, home to historic New Bedford (whaling), Cape Cod (beaches and lighthouses and yummy lobster) and of course, the New England Patriots (who play in my home town of Foxborough).  I have depicted a few of those things on my card.  I started with a card base of GKD Lipstick Red and layered with patterned papers from the Webster's Pages Spring Market, Yacht Club & Country Estate Petite Papers pack.  My fun image is To The Lake from Saturated Canary.  I printed her on Cryogen White and colored her with my Copics.  

Here is a close-up of the the cute image:

The great summer sentiment is from Paulette at Create With TLC.  A double-loop red gingham ribbon bow and a button from my stash finished off my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit The Outlawz site where the 2,000 Member Party is now in full swing!  Check out all the amazing prizes from our awesome sponsors and find out all the ways you can play along with the games, challenges and blog hop to be eligible to win!
