InStyle Stamps Wednesday Challenge #3...Birthday Card!

Hello Everyone!
Today is Wednesday and this weeks InStyle Stamps Challenge is to make a card with a birthday theme!

I kept my card rather simple because I wanted the spotlight to shine on Mellie holding the birthday cake. The cupcake ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon and the card stocks are from Bazzill and Neenah Solar White #80. My image is colored in with Copic Markers. I also used my Nestie rectangle dies and my paper piercing tool to embellish the scallops. The sentiment is from SU and it is embellished with a pink gem in the flowers center.

We would love it if you all gave the challenge a try this week! For more inspiration, please stop by and see the rest of the ISS DT cards. For more information on ISS weekly challenge, please click here!
