Who doesn't love to doodle? That’s why I think this stamp set is so cute. It’s made up of doodled letters and numbers! That being said, I wanted to use a paper that was fun and whimsical like these letters are. It only took me a moment to choose the floral pattern from the Lollydoodle papers. 

Using the Art Philosophy cartridge I cut a flower from Juniper cardstock and then cut the coordinating layer from White Daisy cardstock. The Chocolate Woodgrain Washi Tape coordinated perfectly with some of the flower centers in the paper, so I applied it to the center of the Juniper flower before attaching the white flower. I cut leaves from both Pear cardstock and the Green Glitter Paper with the Artiste cartridge and tucked them under the flower.

Here is what I used. All products are Close to My Heart:

Adorable card. I love how the white flower just pops off of the card.
