Instructions: The card base is 6x6" in white cardstock. Cut a piece of red patterned paper that is 6x6". Cut a piece of light blue patterned paper that is 1.5 x 6". Adhere these 2 layers together and add the silver mini brads. Adhere this to the card base. Find the 6x6" version of the check background patterned paper. Cut off the black check portion of the pattern. Mat what remains in a wide border of black cardstock. Adhere to the card using 3D foam squares. Find and cut out the red mini journal block, and the "Forever Young" banner. Adhere these both to the middle of the card using 3D foam squares.

Stamp the "Happy Birthday" banner and the airplane using black Archival Ink on white cardstock. I added colour to the banner using Seaglass Teal ink and a waterbrush. Adhere this to the top left hand corner of the card using 3D foam squares. I added colour to the airplane using Chameleon Pens (RD4, BR2, BR5, CG8). I used a 5 second fuse on the main panels of the plane with Crimson Red, this gives a slight highlight to emulate shine. I used an 8 second fuse with Hot Cocoa on the wings, and using Bark added colour to the edges. I also used both browns on the propellor.

To finish I used the Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen to add shine to the entire image. Adhere the image to the card using 3D foam squares. Inside I used a piece of light patterned paper and added my sentiment using black Archival Ink.
