Happy Birthday Kelley!

Today is a very special day! Kelley, the owner of Our Daily Bread designs is celebrating her birthday! So I made this card for her. This beautiful ODBD image was released a couple of months ago and I really enjoy coloring it! I used copic markers to color it and then I used several layers of versamark and clear embossing powder to create the glassy look (not sure if you can see that in these photos!).

I embossed the SU! designer paper with a cuttlebug folder and sponged them with Riding Hood Red ink. I added an embossed border punched with a Martha border punch and finished the card with ribbon, brads and Martha butterflies. This sketch is from this week's Mojo Monday sketch. Also, the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge this week is to create a card showing how the earth rejoices. One way that God shows His love for us is in the beauty of flowers, butterflies and the colors of nature. With the craziness and ugliness in our world, we need to stop and take in the beauty that surrounds us. Smell the flowers, watch a butterfly, see the colors of nature and remember that God is still here.

Kelley, I hope that you have a wonderful birthday!
Love ya!
