Celebrate You

Happy Friday!  Yeah!  Looking forward to the three-day weekend.  Got plans?

I haven't played with May Favorite Things for awhile, but this week, it all came together.  I had a great image drawn by Anne Fenton over at The Outlawz Freebies Challenge and it was perfect for the MFTWSC challenge this week.
  Here's my card.

The image is from The Outlawz which I printed out on XPress It Blending Card, colored up with my Copic markers and distressed around the edges with Stampin Up Night of Navy.  The card base is Gina K Designs 120# white.  I love this for bases.  The sentiment is Stampin Up - A Little Birthday Cheer inked in SU Night of Navy on a scrap of SU Night of Navy.  The designer paper is from Authentique - Genuine collection pack.  I added a little piece of SU Crushed Curry Polka Dot Grosgrain ribbon behind the image layer.  The flowers are from Martha Stewart Flower stickers and the leaves are punched out of SU Night of Navy cardstock using the MS leaf branch punch.

The Copics I used for the image were Skin:  E50, E11, E04, R81 for her lips; Hair: E31, E35, E37; Shorts & Shoes: B23, B24, B26; Shirt: Y13, Y15, Y18, Y21; Outline/shadow C0, C2.  I also used the Spica Gel pen - Buttermilk for her bracelets.

This is the first card I've made since taking the Intermediate Copics class last weekend.  What do you think? 

I'm submitting this to the following challenges:

The Outlawz - Creative Freebies
My Favorite Things - Wednesday Sketch Challenge
AUD Sentiments - Any Sentiment
Moving Along with the Times - Celebration, Anything but a Birthday

That's it for this time.  Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comments.  I really appreciate all of them.
