Green Summer - Flowers + Dilly Beans

Our theme this week at Pile It On! is Flowers, sponsored by Dilly Beans Stamps. This isn't my week to play along at Pile It On as a DT member, but I couldn't resist participating.

I made a relatively simple shaped card using Dilly Beans Digi #541, Doodle Flower 1:

I printed the image on two different green papers, in two different greens (I colorized the image in Photoshop), and printed it again on a lighter green, which I folded in half and used as the base.

I couldn't resist adding my own doodles to this Doodle Flower. I used Sharpies for the thicker lines, and TEKwriter gel and glitter pens for the coloring and smaller details. For the middle, I added omse Liquid Pearls, green Stickles, and one dot from a VIVA pearl pen.
