Timeless Tuesday ~ It's All in the Date!

Howdy all!  Welcome to my challenge week for Timeless Tuesday at Flourishes.

This week's challenge is all about DATES... birth DATES that is!  For this challenge, we want you to create with the TWO items listed next to your birth month (see image below).  So for example, my birthday is in June, so I had to create a "birthday themed" project using the color pink.  You may use any additional supplies in your creation as long as you use the 2 elements listed below.

So as I said above, I have to create project using the JUNE elements: a birthday theme and the color pink!  Here is the card that I came up with...

I first started with a simple A2 card base using Flourishes Classic Kraft Cardstock.  I created a mat using Flourishes Classic Black Cardstock next and created my multiple patterned paper layers with additional stitching detail.

For my focal image, I die cut a rectangle from Flourishes Classic White Cardstock. Leaving the die on the cardstock, I stamped the present image from the "Bike Ride" stamp set first.  I created a simple "Post It Note" mask and then stamped my bike image right over the mask.  Then I took my Copic Marker airbrush tool and sprayed some Copic Y13 and splattered some R14 from the following Copic Collections:
I removed the cardstock from the die and coloured the remainder of my image using these Copic Collections:


Inside my card, I used the same patterned papers and created a block for my writing.  To finish off my birthday theme, I stamped my "Happy Birthday" greeting from the "Inside & Out: Happy" stamp collection using the Memento Ink colours, "Bahama Blue" and "Rose Bud".  I also stamped another bike image from the "Bike Ride" stamp set in a more subtle yellow ink.

I hope you have fun with my challenge this week!!
