ODBD Birthday Blessings

In the last two days there have been three birthdays to celebrate among my family and friends. I wanted each to know what a blessing they are to me and how I pray and wish God's blessings on them. Here's one of the cards I made to share a blessing with a friend. I've always noticed that she enjoys displaying cards on her mantle, so I made her an easel card.



I chose the scripture and inside sentiment from Our Daily Bread Designs  (stamps Birthday Blessings, All Occasion Sentiments). I used their Shining the Light Challenge today to include elements that started with the letters
O - Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, Organdy ribbon
D - Die cuts (Cricut butterfly from Florals Embellished, circle and mat from Artiste)
B - Butterfly, Bow, Birthday Blessings
D - Distressed by inking the edges


The scripture sentiment on front says:

"For through wisdom your days will be many, and years will be added to your life. Proverbs 9:11"

The vintage looking papers came from Graphic45 "Ladies' Diary." I chose this for her card because the first time I had ever seen Graphic45 papers we were shopping together, admiring it together.

Thank you for visiting!

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
Bitten by the Bug 2 - Tiny winged things - butterfly
Crafty Sentiments Designs - Lace and/or Pearls (pearls on flowers, butterfly, and 5 large pearls inside to help card stand up)
Love to Scrap #75 - use a bow
Try It On Tuesday - Add a quote (Proverbs 9:11)
Word Art Wednesday #224-225 - anything uplifting
