Alcohol Markers Challenge - The Outlawz

Hi again!  I'm back with a second post today.  If you are looking for my Make it Crafty Sitting Pretty Blog Hop post, please scroll down one.  I am back to share my DT card for this week's Alcohol Markers Challenge at The Outlawz site.  The theme this week is a color inspiration.  You don't have to match the colors exactly, but we'd like to be able to see the general color palette on your project.  And please remember that you must have coloring with alcohol markers (any brand) to enter.

Here is the color inspiration, courtesy of Design Seeds:

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Pistachio Pudding and the patterned papers are from the October Afternoon Nine to Five 8x8 pad.  The beautiful image is Butterfly Bliss from Delicious Doodles.  I printed it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added glitter to the butterfly wings for some sparkle.  A triple-loop seam binding bow and a Wild Orchid Crafts Cherry Blossom from my stash finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:
