Coloring Vellum + Card Chain Challenge

Hi there!

Remember those chain letters you'd get as a kid? You'd have to send a message to the top person on the list and at some point you'd get a letter from another person on the list?  Well, last month I came across a cardmaking-chain-letters-of-the-21st-century blog and I was immediately intrigued! I signed up to join in the Card Chain Challenge fun and made this card that I sent off to Kelly in Florida:

I know the photo is gigantic LOL but I wanted you to be able to see the embossed background.  I used vellum for the flowers and colored then with some really great markers that were supplied to me from DoCrafts.  I love the colors in the set and they went on so smooth. I'll be posting more about them soon so stay tuned :)

Tips and Tricks:
To add color to vellum, flip it over and use markers to color on the back and not the front ;)  Make sure to let it dry thoroughly.

Thanks for spending part of your day with me!
