This was such a quick and simple card to make as well as extremely economical!
It only needed a black pen,and one small off cut of patterned paper, plus some foam pads to 3d the elements (although little off cuts of corrugated card glued both sides would have worked equally as well).
Once I had scribbled/ doodled some flowers on the patterned paper I roughly cut them out, added some extra doodled centres matted onto foam squares, some doodled leaves cut out and finished with a doodled border and handwritten sentiment

I thought this would be a cheerful card to send someone I know who is very under the weather.

The actual design was taken from Claire's challenge at Do crafts, so this detracts slightly from the clean and simple style I have tried to adopt this year, but I did resist the temptation to use ribbons and embellishments as the design used most areas of the card surface.
I was also inspired to doodle on patterned paper as the challenge at DYSU is "patterns". I really like this look and will experiment with this a bit's a great way to use up scraps!
