ISS Wednesday - Birthday Challenge

A Day Late and A Dollar Short:

Yes, yesterday was the InStyle Stamps Wednesday Challenge....and this week our theme is Happy Birthday! I had planned to have my card done and posted for yesterday morning; however, there was some tragic news in my hometown on Tuesday (you can see the info here), so I didn't get my card done until today. I did not know the people involved in the tragic event, but it is still sad and so close to home.

But now on to the card! I used Mellie from ISS along with the sketch over at Sketch Saturday! She is so sweet with her cake!!! I want to dedicate this card to Mary who is on the DT over at ISS with me! It was her birthday yesterday, so this was made in honor of her!!!! Happy Birthday Hun!!! I used pink liquid applique on Mellie's cake for the frosting....but totally forgot to do my nestie cutout until after I already had the frosting made and when I ran Mellie through my cuttlebug her frosting made a mess all over...but I did manage to save the image (just barely)! Her frosting did look much better before her cuttlebug experience! LOL!
Here is a close up of Miss. Mellie:
Mellie from InStyle Stamps
Inks: Momento Tuxedo Black, Copics
Papers: SU cardstock, DCWV dp, and some papers from my stash
Tools: Nesties, EK Success border punch
