Make it Monday Challenge #121 - Colored Vellum Flowers

Hello my friends!  It's Sunday evening and the weekend is winding down.  Weekends go by so fast I wish we could work a 2 day week and have a 5 day weekend!  The weather in the Midwest is finally acting like it's supposed to - it was a nice, warm sunny weekend!

Every Monday, Papertrey Ink has a challenge called 'Make It Monday' and I love the techniques they show each week.  I decided to try my hand at one of them.  This week's challenge was coloring flowers on vellum.  Now there's nothing like waiting until the 11th hour to finish and enter the challenge but as long as my entry is there before 7am in the morning I'm golden!

Here is my card for the challenge.  I used a Simon Says Stamp called 'Flower Friend' for the flowers and a sentiment from Papertrey Ink called 'Think Big Favorites #6'.  My papers are from the 6x6 pad called 'Memorable' from the My Minds Eye 'Collectible' collection.

Other supplies used are: 1 1/8 circle punch, corner rounder, Doodlebug Twine, clear dome gems and Stickles in a variety of colors (one to match each flower color) and the flowers are colored with COPIC markers. 

That's all for now.  Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again soon!
