Lemonade and Chinese Lanterns

Today is Friday and that means Unity's Friends with Flair. I've made a couple of ATC's.  First up is from the May 2013 Kit of the month.

 
I used watercolor pencil to fill in the image.  I added a pieces of vellum to the side along with a silk flower.  The leaves are from another silk flower cut and glued behind the flower.

 
I used Bic Mark It markers to color in the lanterns.  The colors in the markers are perfect for the lanterns.  I added a pieces of embroidery yarn across the top and tied the ends in knots.
 
Thanks for stopping by.
