This week's challenge at The Outlawz Coloring Challenges is "Celebrations", such as birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, retirements, Fridays, etc.  My Outlawz Coloring Challenge teammates, Carla, Penny, Karen, Vannessa, and I challenge you to use create a project for this challenge. You can use any coloring medium you like, just as long as you color! 

Our May sponsor at The Outlawz Coloring Challenges is Sweet Pea Stamps, who is offering our lucky winner three digis of his/her choice from the Sweet Pea Digi Stamp Store.  Play along with us for your chance to win!

I chose Green Bubble Sprite because she looks so festive resting upon a bubble. I've decided it's a champagne bubble because all celebrations call for champagne. Don't you agree?

Green Bubble Sprite was resized in PhotoElements, printed onto Neenah cardstock with my laser printer, then colored with Copic markers. The background was added with palette chalk from both Stampin' Up and Pebbles. Some glitter was added to certain elements using my Clear Stardust Gelly pen (Sakura).

Since I was going old school with the chalked background, I used seriously old patterned paper from the Kaleidoscope collection by My Mind's Eye. The copyright date is 2005. The patterned paper was layered according to a sketch from Technostamper Challenges.

Here's the sketch so you can see how I did with it.

I didn't add a sentiment because the sketch didn't call for one, but I can always add one later when I decide who will get the card and for what occasion.

Thanks for visiting today!

I shall enter this into the following challenges:
Technostamper 1st and 3rd Monday Sketch Challenges
Chalk N Stock Challenges: Anything Goes 
One Sweet Challenge: Things with Wings
