It's a doodle!

I made this card to accompany my ATC. Rainmac was a brilliant swap partner and very understanding of the fact that I didn't post my ATC off to her when I said I would. I sent this little thank you card to go with the ATC.

The flower was created by stamping a sun image several times onto an old book. The image was then cut out and coloured with distress inks. It's then been stacked up and micro beads have been poured into the centre and covered with Glossy Accents. The word stem has been doodled. I'm quite pleased with the doodling, and will definitely be using this on future projects.
