I made this card for this weeks Timeless Tuesday challenge which is called "It's All In The Date". A list of every month in the year is provided, each month has a different challenge, and we are asked to use the challenge for our own birthday month. Well, I was an October baby so my challenge was to use two or more flowers and something clear. I couldn't resist using my new Flourishes Garden Gate stamp set (it has lots of flowers!) so I stamped the gate image with Memento ink onto blending card, coloured it with copics, and cut it into a square. Then I used Spellbinders Labels 26 and Classic Squares to make a frame from metallic gold cardstock. I put a square of acetate under the frame for the "glass" for my "something clear" and I deliberately allowed a little bit of reflection to show in the photo so it could be seen! The background paper is from Garden DSP (Crafters Choice), layered onto light blue cardstock. I punched some white cardstock with Martha Stewart's doiley lace punch and layered that onto more light blue cardstock and adhered it to the left side of the background. I added some paper flowers with brads and then a notched tag stamped with a sentiment from Flourishes Just Because stamp set.
Copic colours used were: B0000, C1, YG11, YG13, YG17, YG03, YG63, YG67, Y11, Y13, Y15, RV00, RV02, RV04, E11, E13, E17, E19.
