Alcohol Markers Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday and Happy Valentine's Day!  Hope you've had a good week and you have fun plans for the weekend!  The snow is gone and the sun is out, so already, we are in a better place than earlier in the week!  I'm off to a bit of a late start, but am here with my DT post for the Alcohol Markers Challenge at The Outlawz site.  We have a photo inspiration challenge this week.  It's always fun to see the different interpretations of the same photo.  Just remember you must have coloring with alcohol markers (any brand) on your project.

Here is the photo we used for inspiration:

Here is my card:

I went with a pretty clean style, at least for me.  I layered patterned papers from the Cosmo Cricket Tea For Two 6x6 pad onto the white base.  The image is Rosie by Art by MiRan.  She was offered as a freebie during her grand opening, but she is now available in the Art by MiRan Etsy shop.  I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  Some pretty lace and a few pearls from my stash 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 fantastic creations from my teammies, Penny, Dawn and Linda!  We hope you will play along!  The February challenges are being sponsored by Sami Stamps.  Check out Samantha's adorable designs here.  One lucky winner will receive a $12 GC to the Sami Stamps shop.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Tuesday Morning Sketches #236 (sketch and use lace and/or pearls)
Stampin' For The Weekend (flower power; I used flowers in my DP and image)
Art by MiRan February Facebook Challenge (make it girly)
