Alcohol Markers Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a great week and you have fun plans for the weekend!  The roofers did not finish yesterday, so I have one more day of pounding and it should be done.  Looking forward to a quiet weekend!  I am here now to with my DT post for the Alcohol Markers Challenge at The Outlawz site.  Our theme this week is "Thanksgiving or general thanks".  That leaves it pretty wide open, but please remember that you must have some coloring with alcohol markers (any brand) on your project.

Here is my thank you card:

I went with Autumn colors, but made a thank you card rather than another one for Thanksgiving since I don't send out too many of Thanksgiving cards.  My card base is SU Tangerine Tango and the patterned paper is from the Bo Bunny Autumn Song 6x6 pad.  My cute image is Apple Bake from Elisabeth Bell's Digital Collection.  I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  The sentiment is from an old Gina K. Designs set, Fine Furnishings Additions.  A Cheery Lynn Tropical Flourish diecut and a few metal leaves finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Alcohol Markers Challenge and check out the gorgeous projects from the rest of the DT!  We hope you will join in on the challenge this week!  There are always fantastic prizes to be won when you enter the challenges at The Outlawz!
