ANYTHING GOES - TODAY'S COPIC/PROMRKER CHALLENGE AT THE OUTLAWZ

Today's challenge at The Outlawz Copics/Promarker challenge is a fun one :

ANYTHING GOES
with an optional CHRISTMAS twist

I opted to use the twist,. so here is my DT sample card using an image from Kenny K :


I coloured the image using alcohol markers (a combination of Copics and Spectrum Noir) and used a white gel pen for the highlights:


To make up my card ... this is what I used from my stash:

red CS card base
white CS card mat
Christmas themed DP
punched border using red CS. laced with silver cord
punched foliage border using green CS
punched flowers - double layer - using white CS
sewn on sequins and beads (tiny green flowers)
three gem stars for bling
Merry Christmas peel-off

All put together I think this is such a happy feeling card!
