Just doodlin about today.....

I FINALLY had a chance to play with my new doodle set today. yay! It is SO much fun! I have seen tons of cute stuff and was dying to try my hand at it. This is the first card I made. I actually had this patterned paper sitting out on my work table from a class I did yesterday so I decided to start with it. The paper is actually two sided. You are seeing both sides here. I cut one strip smaller than the other so I could layer them. I LOVE the two sided paper! It takes the guess work out of matching papers. I just use both sides together! I distressed the edges of the patterned paper a bit by not changing my dull trimmer blade, layered them and stuck them on the Chocolate chip card base I had made. The card is 5-1/2 square. I stamped the doodle swirls in Choc Chip on the green strip and then mounted my flowers on. I had stamped the flowers in Basic Brown on Vanilla, then I colored them in with my Many Marvelous Markers or M3 as they are called in the stampin world. (as of now...) I used the petals of the big flower as leaves to fill in the empty spaces. The Thanks is also stamped in Bbrown on Vanilla and punched out with the key tag punch. It fit perfectly! Gotta love that! When I got to this point I decided I should have stamped some texture in the background so I went back and added some doodle swirls to the Choc paper with Bbrown. I really like this card but since I made it FOR someone, I am going to mail it out. I'll miss it.....
