Don't Break the Chain...

Ever received a chain letter in the mail? Well, I signed up to be part of a group of women who are mailing cards to each other, one card's design serving as fuel for the next. I've had the card for a few weeks, but I never intended to break the chain. So, here's my card.

Let's start with the card that was sent to me. I was inspired by the little bit of bling on the tree, and the swirls behind it. Evidently, Season of Joy has been wildly popular among customers and demonstrators, and this card was made using that.

So was mine. I never like wasting anything, and so the focal point of this image should look familiar to those who read this blog regularly. But I also wanted to use a different sentiment--the word "Peace" from Peaceful Wishes. It was a little tricky, since the company doesn't make markers to go with the In Color collection, specifically Blue Bayou that was used here, but I'm pleased with the results.

Wish I had more time for blah blah blah, but I need to get to work. Enjoy! I hope my recipient does...
