Happy Birthday Kelley!

Today, my card is specially made for Kelley Holland, owner of Our DailyBread Designs!

It's her birthday and several of us on the DT got together and decided to post a birthday card to her today, using any ODBD Stamp set.

I used Happy Birthday! I know... not that clever, huh? Well... my sentiment is on the inside. I thought the image that came with the set would be perfect for fall, so I pulled out my BasicGrey Indian Summer, Bazzill yellow and Chocolate Chip for my base.

I stamped the image on Neenah card stock with Memento Ink and colored with Copics. I cut the circle out of white cs and sponged on T Holtz Distress Inks in Tattered Rose and Scattered Straw . Then I spritzed the entire thing with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Iridescent Gold. Wow! Did that ever sparkle then! Can't tell in the photo because it's very cloudy out and my inside shots never seem to show shimmer, but it's there. I mounted the image panel on a Spell Binders Lattice Pendant cut from Bazzil and then lightly sponged with TH Tattered Rose. I used the SB Lattice Edgeability for my ribbon treatment. I popped up the image on dimensionals. Kelley's favorite color is pink and it's got a good bit of pink in it but it's still those fall tones... I hope she likes it!

Happy Birthday Kelley!!! It's in the mail... a little late I'm afraid, but it's coming! Hugs! :)
