Pattern paper, die cut and doodling

Hello my crafty friends:

How are you all doing?  Well I hope!

A short post today, just want to share a card I made for Virginia's View Challenge #7 - Pattern Paper,

and for a small challenge I host for a Canadian stamping group - Canadian Stamp Talk, our challenge is to include some doodling in our paper craft project.

Here's my card:

For my background panel, I stamped Hero Arts Envelope Pattern with Ranger Distress Broken China on pattern paper from the Flea Market Collection (Crate Paper).  Then I use a white gel pen to draw some free hand motif on the edges.  Then I stamped the rose from the Echo Park Co, For The Record stamp and die set on pattern paper from the Picadilly collection (BasicGrey) with Memento Tuxedo Black.  I first fuzzy cut the flowesr and leaves, then paper pieced them together on white CS then die cut as one unit.  Photo frame is from Imaginisce.  Sentiment is from Hero Arts Time set.  The I drew the same motif with black marker in the frame.

Whew!!  That was a long description eh?!  So it is not a short post after all!  :)

Thanks for stopping by!
