Live Life!

I didn't have the SCS color challenge colors of Melon Mambo or Soft Suede so I used Copics in similar colors on my image. I even got the Dessert Option in by using wood grain designer paper!
This great image is Demetri one of the new African American figures from Rubbernecker Stamps I clear embossed the image using brown and Versamark inks, colored it, cut it out and adhered it to the Labels Ten nestie panel with foam dimensionals. The card base is embossed with the Distressed Stripes Cuttlebug folder.

Tonight DH and I are going to live life! We're going out to eat at Jacob Wirth's and then to the Lyric Stage to see Noel Coward's Blithe Spirit - fun way to start the weekend!

What are your weekend plans??!
