Outlawz Fridays Alcohol Markers Challenge - Back to School

Sorry I've been a bit slacking on making cards and visiting your blogs.  Hopefully I'll have a tad more play time here in the very near future!  I did manage to make my card for the Outlawz Fridays Alcohol Markers Challenge...whoo hoo!  This week's theme is "Back to School".  My kiddos are all grown up (and no grandchildren yet), but I do have a few nieces and nephews still in school, so the card will not go to waste!  The image I used is a coloring page from Coloring Pages for Kids.  They have over 6,000 free images to color on their website!  You can find the backpack image here

After coloring the image, I added the bling heart to the backpack.  I like how it pairs with the backpack hardware that I colored with a Jelly Roll pen.

Please do not forget this month the Alcohol Markers Challenges are being sponsored by our very own DT member, Dawn, who is a talented digi artist and has her own Etsy shop, LilyPink Scraps!  Pop on over and check out Dawn's fantastic digis!  She is offering the winner three digis of their choice from her shop!

Would love to see you join Carla, Dawn, Jen, Linda and me over at the Outlawz for this week's challenge!  Hope you all have a fantastic weekend, and thank you for taking time to visit my blog!
