Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper June challenge

This is my first card for my Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper June challenge - please click on the link to discover what this is all about, if you haven't done so already - and please join in my challenge, using any of your patterned paper - anything goes, as long as you use some patterned paper.

The prize this month is:

K & company Roam 6" x 6" paper pad
36 sheets - 3 sheets each of 12 designs

I had two of the K & Co Roam paper pads, so I made two cards using the same two stamps in different ways on two different pieces of paper from the pad.

The first card was created with one of these pieces of paper:

on to which I stamped the Stampington Company 'Leonardo' stamp inked with memento rich cocoa and also the Tim Holtz script stamp. I coloured with copic pens including some pale yelllow over the script - this looks much better irl than it does here.

This is also for:

Retro rubber 15: vintage (both stamps are much older than one year)
Allsorts 313: vintage
Vintage challenge 103: font/script
Create something catchy 15: CAS cards
Scrappy hands 40: clean and simple
One crazy stamper June: anything goes
Art by Miran 33: anything goes
Amusing challenge (stamped blessings): anything goes
Simon says Wednesday: anything goes
The pink elephant 300: anything goes
Not just cards 20: anything goes
Inspiration destination 35: anything goes
Sister act 108: anything goes
Beccy's place June
Eclectic Ellapu June: anything goes
