Birthday Blog Hop

Welcome to Our Daily Bread Designs Birthday Blog Hop, celebrating Kelley's Birthday! Kelley is the awesome lady behind Our Daily Bread Designs and I feel blessed to be a part of her DT!

If you arrived here from Wanda's blog then you are in the right place, if not, you might want to start at the ODBD Blog and hop from there, or use the links at the end of this post. Here is the card that I made for her:

I have stamped the Our Daily Bread Designs Lavender three times onto X-Press It blending card using Memento Lulu Lavender. I've then stamped Our Daily Bread Designs Bee Balm using Memento Tuxedo Black over the Lavender and coloured with Copic markers. 

I have stamped the Our Daily Bread Designs Hummingbird onto X-Press It blending card and diecut using ODBD Hummingbird die. I've then coloured the Hummingbird with Copics. 

Copic markers used:
Flower and Hummingbird: YR02, YR04, YR09
Leaves: G82, G85, G94

For the sentiment panel I have stamped Our Daily Bread Designs Antique Label Designs onto X-Press It blending card and then stamped the sentiment, from Our Daily Bread Designs Be Joyful, and diecut using ODBD Antique Labels and Border Dies

The gorgeous little flowers are diecut from ODBD Christian Faith Paper Collection using one of the smallest dies from ODBD Ornamental Crosses dies. I've then turned them wrong side up on a foam mat (I used my sew easy mat but you could use anything soft such as a mouse pad, lots of layers of thin paper etc.) and used a stylus to curve each petal. I've also added an AnnaBelle stamps 3 mm Lilac sprinkle in the middle of each one. The greenery is diecut using ODBD Fancy Foliage die. I've cut one diecut in two to make the two sections.

Over on the right side of my card I've added some "lace" using ODBD Beautiful Borders dies. I love these dies and there are three gorgeous designs to choose from in the set, although I think this one is my favourite (I use it the most)!

The purple DP that I've used is ODBD Christian Faith Paper Collection and the red/orange/green DP is ODBD Blooming Garden Paper Collection. My card base is Bazzill textured cardstock and most panels have been inked around the edges with Distress Ink Milled Lavender.

The hummingbird and sentiment panel are popped up on foam tape and I've added some Crafter's Choice orange ribbon to finish off the card.

Happy Birthday Kelley!!
