And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Happy Birthday, Kelley!

Hello friends!  I am so excited to be posting a special birthday wish for Kelley, owner of Our Daily Bread Designs! Kelley is always so faithful to wish everyone on her team a happy Birthday...now the Breadsticks have decided to honor her with a special Birthday Blog Hop!  We hope you'll join us in wishing Kelley a Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday dear, Kelley!
Happy Birthday to you!

Hope your day is full of sweet blessings, Kelley, and may you enjoy health, happiness, and many more years to bring glory to our Lord through Our Daily Bread Designs!

Here is a card just for you!
I made sure to include pink...
{{{Hugs}}}!
Creative Nugget:  This card is my first attempt at using Gelatos...and needless to say, I still have a lot to learn about this medium!  The Vine Background stamp was clear embossed on Vintage Cream card stock.  Gelatos were colored over the embossing and blended down into the areas that were not embossed. A baby wipe was used to wipe off the extra color from the embossing.  The same colored Gelatos were used to color another piece of card stock.  These colors were also blended with my finger, and the Birthday Chalkboard was stamped over the colors with Jet Black Archival Ink.  Decorative Corner Dies, Fancy Foliage Dies, dyed seam binding, and a mulberry rose finish the card.

To continue on your way, just click on the link list below!  Be sure to leave a comment on each blog along the way, and leave a special birthday wish for Kelley on the ODBD Blog! Thanks so much for joining us!

Once again...
Happy Birthday Kelley!
Hugs,
Cathymac

I think Kelley will also think this is a winner, Cathy. I have used gelatos a little and really love their look. I think you did an amazing job on this card with all the amazing techniques, dies and coloring.
