Flora Doodle

Hello everyone, hope you've all got a sunny day as we have here on the South Coast today. I've just scraped in here with my entry for this week's Raise The Bar challenge which is to make something inspired and based on your blog background.
Those of you that know me will be aware that I actually designed my own blog background so I had to have a go at this one to get me in doodling mode again. Here's my card which uses some of my stamps as well as some hand doodling to go with the designs.
I've used 2 of the flower stamps to make a 3D effect flower and made the leaf and stalk section from another stamp by trimming the central section. I rounded all of the pieces out with a large embossing tool before assembling the card.
I made a doodles border with scalloped edges for the side of the card and then doodled the butterfly for the top corner. The background panel is embossed with the Cuttlebug Diamonds in the Rough folder.
If you're interested in looking at the stamp designs, there is a link to the Hobby Art online shop which will take you to all of my Oodles of Doodles designs.
Thanks for looking.

I'm not blogging, not allowed as I'm resting, but when this popped up on my dashboatd could not resist saying how I love it.

OOooh - I have a set of these beautiful stamps Fliss (OK - so I was lucky enough to win them, as I'm sure you remember)!!! I love what you have done with them on this card - it really is stunning.
We are also having a wonderful Indian Summer here in West Yorkshire - hope it continues a while longer.
