Copic/Promarker Challenge - The Outlawz

Hi again!  I'm up now and back with my DT card for this week's Copic/Promarker Challenge at The Outlawz site.  The theme this week is the ever-popular "anything goes".  If you have been collecting our free calendar page templates all year, the December calendar page and printing instructions are available in the challenge thread.

Here is my "anything goes" card:

My card base and mats are SU Not Quite Navy and the patterned paper is from the Basic Grey Oxford 6x6 pad.  The fun vintage collage image is called "Oh Hell, No".  It's from our November CPC challenge sponsor, That's Fabulous!.  I printed it on Make it Colour Blending card and colored it with my Copics.  I had a bit of trouble with my dark blue markers, so the pleats/folds on her dress are a little wonky, but I didn't have time to go back and redo the whole thing..  The sentiment is from the same digistamp set.  I sponged around the image with a bit of Antique Linen Distress Ink for a more aged look.  A Not Quite Navy taffeta bow, three Wild Orchid Crafts Open Roses and two sets of three ivory pearls finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to pop by the Copic/Promarker Challenge and check out the fabulous projects from my DT sistahs!  We hope you will play along in our last challenge of November.  As I mentioned, the November challenges were sponsored by Mischelle at That's Fabulous!.  One randomly-chosen participant in our challenges will win three digis and a paper pack from That's Fabulous!.  Mischelle's site appears to be under construction right now, but I'm sure it will be up soon.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Fab 'n Funky #150 (three of something - I used 3 flowers, and two sets of three pearls)
Crafting For All Seasons #41 (use flowers)
Friday Sketch Challenge #31 (sketch by Debra)

Here is the sketch, which I flipped one turn:

Have a terrific Friday and great weekend and I hope to see you soon!
