Friday Coloring Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  Be safe out there today if you are doing the Black Friday sales!  I most definitely don't go out in those crowds, so I hope to catch up on some things around the house and maybe even get some crafting done.  I am here now with my DT post for this week's Friday Coloring Challenge at The Outlawz site.  The theme for this last challenge of the month is "anything goes" with the option to add a Christmas twist.  The twist is completely optional, but if you are like me, you will welcome the chance to add another Christmas card to your stash.  You can use any coloring medium you'd like, but you must have a hand-colored image on your project to enter.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Real Red and the patterned papers are from the Recollections City Sidewalks 6x6 pad.  The fun image is Phoebe Christmas Wish by Make it Crafty. She is one of the fab new Winter Girls digis that were released recently.  I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I'll add a sentiment later once I know who is getting this card.  Three Wild Orchid Crafts poinsettias finished my card. 

Here is a close-up of the colored image:
Copic Colors:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: E35, E50, E53, E57, YR24, YR31
Red: R22, R35, R37, R46, R59
Green: GYG01, YG03, YG25, YG17, YG67

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Friday Coloring Challenge and check out the fantastic creations from my teammies, Penny, Laine, Kathi and Dawn.  We hope you will play along!  It's your last chance to be in on a chance to win 3 digis of your choice from our November sponsor, The East Wind.  Unky's digis are awesome, so be sure to check our her shop!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
