Flower Doodle

Am being forced to catch up on our laundry today 'cos there's a severe basket overflow situation with piles big enough to sink the Titanic ... where does it all come from??

In between washloads I've managed to make a couple of quick cards, which are virtually identical apart from the wee bit of doodling I added to the 2nd version around the petals and the edges of the layers.
Click the picture for a larger image.

The Pink Elephant Challenge #26 is a recipe where the ingredients are ...
3 x brads
1 x flower
1 x patterned paper

... and Funky Fairys Challenge #28 is to use Black and White ... so I've killed 2 birds with 1 stone here.
The focal flower image with the funky border is from Funky Fairys Doodmentals kit ... which was a free download ... and I simply printed it onto white paper, then matted and layered with black and white card from the scrap box before adding a black button brad to the centre.
The patterned paper was also in my scrap box but I can't remember which range it came from ... sorry.
All the bits were popped onto a plain white DL card blank and finished with spotty ribbon a sticky sentiment and large white brads.
Super simple!

Know how you feel with the washing! Had my grandson and I have two teenage boys at home you can imagine every day the machine is on where oh where does it all come from and it's as quick to fill up again.

Sadly GS has gone home but washing may lesson and I may get a card made now lol

Hello Max

My favourite colours on your card.
The black button in the centre of the flower finishes it off perfectly.

I love how you have tied the ribbon around the buttons.
