Welcome to a Special ODBD Birthday Blog Hop! Today we are saying HAPPY BIRTHDAY to RICK!

If you’ve been to one of the Stamp Shows or conventions, then you’ve probably seen Rick in the ODBD booth. Rick is Kelley’s husband and number one fan and today is his birthday!

Julie Warner -

For my birthday card, I used the new Special Boy set. I figured this set was about as masculine as they get and works well for big boys as well as little boys. I made the background for the largest layer and truck image by swiping various colors of Copic markers across a piece of vanilla card stock. Then the truck image and tire tracks were stamped on top of these using the dk brown chalk ink. I fussy cut the truck and attached it to a deckled rectangle of vanilla to give it a bit of separation. The metallic bronze layer was embossed w/ a Sizzix folder and the sentiment was die cut and attached to a leftover strip of the background with small bronze brads. Since I wanted to have crossed checkered flags, I stamped one as usual and stamped one again on the plastic sheet of my SAMJ (stamp-a-ma-jig) then quickly pressed a piece of vanilla c/s on top to get the reverse image.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy Birthday, Rick!

This is also for the Sketch Challenge (SC418) on Splitcoast today. As usual, I rearranged it a bit and turned it on its side.
