Surprise!! Happy Birthday Kelley!!

KelleyBday blk

Today is Kelley's, ODBD, Forty-something birthday!!
The Breadsticks thought it would be fun
to surprise her with cards from some older sets to use on her display boards....A lot of the card samples show a little wear and tear and fading over time due to constant handling and exposure to bright lights.

KelleyBday sideI chose Peace On Earth.
It's colored with Copics, masked and airbrushed.

KelleyBday clsup For the lion's eyes, I used a Marvy Embossable marker and clear EP, then touched around the corners with a white gel pen. While I had the lion and lamb masked I also gave it a good spritzing of Pearl Glimmer Mist!

Now, continue along this birthday celebration to Fran, Angie, and Debi to see their wonderful creations!! For the entire list go to the ODBD blog.

Thanks for stopping!
