The image I used for this week's challenge at Inspiration Destination is quite out of the ordinary for me.  One of our new sponsor's is Kenny K.  I decided to go for one of his more risque images, Carmen Electrafying, just to do something totally different.  I think I completely shocked my husband when he saw it.  I asked him what he thought and he didn't really answer.  I assumed he didn't like it.  Actually, he asked me if I could make him a life-size one.  I don't think so!  It was fun to make this card, though.  This is the first time I tried blue highlights for the hair.  I ended up covering a bit too much of it up when I went back to touch up the black.  Oh well, next time. 

The digital papers are from Po and Po Digital on Etsy.  I colored the image with Copics.  The race flags were cut with the Silhouette.  I am using the Silhouette more and more to decorate cards.

Copics:  B21, B24, B27, C00, C0, C1, C2, C3, C5, C7, 
E00, E01, E11, E13, R21, R22, R24, R27, R39, Y38, 100
