The Outlawz Friday Coloring Celebration Challenge/Angela's Mother's Day Card

This post is going to be historically short. I caught Gary's cold. 'Nuf said.

Our challenge this week is Celebration. This can be for any occasion. I chose Mother's Day, as I needed to make a card for our daughter, Angela. I am intending to feel well enough to go to the fabulous brunch she booked for us on Sunday...

Our sponsor this month is, happily, Sweet Pea Stamps. I have the greatest love for this wonderful shop. Do check out all the talented artists. Our lucky, randomly-drawn participant will win 3 digis from their amazing collection.

I chose to work with Sweet Pea Stamps Fireflies, by Janna Prosvirina. Love this image, which I printed on X-Press It BC and colored with my Copics:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: E53, E35, E29
Wings: YR14, YR16, YR18, R81, R83, R85
Leaves: YG21, YG23, YG25
Dress: R81, R83, R85, YR14, YR16, YR18
Fireflies: YR20, YR21, YR23

I added some ribbon, DP from an old Basic Grey Gypsy collection, a WOC pin, Star Dust Stickles on the 'flies, and used Stampin' Up CS. 

As always, check out the fabulous inspiration by my very talented teammates: Carla, Kathi, Vannessa, and Karen! Then please play along with us this week!

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend. Tomorrow is our 45th anniversary. We have postponed the celebration of that until next weekend. Well, at least we will be able to take advantage of Restaurant Week pricing at our favorite hangouts...
