Floral card with Polka doodles

This was meant to be a quick make and as long as you do what I say and not what I did (…) it will be.
Most of the work is done by the papers, all from an already colour matched selection by Polkadoodles with a stamped image.

I kept the focal image simple by just stamping and not colouring, applying the colour to the stamps instead.

I combined 3 stamps from the Polkadoodles Clear Stamp Set - Hello Friend to build my image and this required to mask both the leaves and the big bloom, as I wanted them on top of the smaller flower.

If you are prone to distraction and/or forgetfulness (ahem!) it might be a good idea to write down the stamping sequence as otherwise you will end up with a flower head in the background but its stem in the foreground...

To finish I added a stamped sentiment from the Everyday Sentiments by Julie Hickey Designs and embossed it in white.

For an even quicker make, cut or tear the papers (rather than die-cutting) and place on the card base at an angle, then you don't have to worry about keeping everything straight!
