Happy Monday!  Today, the ODBD designers are celebrating a very special lady's birthday!  Happy Birthday, Randi Barrett!  You can read about Randi's story here. 

If you just hopped over from Debi's blog you are in the right spot.  If not, you may want to start at the ODBD Blog!


Randi has a stamp set in the store dedicated to her called Randi's Song For my card today I used elements from this set along with the poppy image from Mother's Day and the sentiment from the Happy Birthday set.  I used ODBD Custom Poppy die.  This image and die come with stem included.  I just snipped the top of the poppy off and colored with copics. I added some gun metal stickles to the centers.  I stamped the scripted verse in Randi's Song set inside the large scalloped August Release Bookmark Collection of  ODBD Spellbinder's Exclusive Bookmark dies.  I lightly sponged inside.  I did cut this die down.  For this card the bookmark die is used as more of a tag than a bookmark.  It is adhered to the card. 


Next, I stamped the two step leaves that come in Randi's Song with Memento Pear and a couple with New Sprout inks.  The veining stamp was stamped with ripe avocado inks.  I cut those out and inked the edges a bit.  I then arranged my three flowers and the leaves to create a fun and colorful arrangement to coordinate with my background paper.  I finished with a double ended fishtail sentiment, seam binding bow, and some gold metallic memory thread curly que touches.   

 As always thanks so much for stopping by!  Next on the hop is Sandee's blog!
