Happy Mistake

Have you ever made a mistake, tried to fix it and made a bigger mess but in the end it came out better than if you hadn't made the mistake to begin with? How's that for a sentence LOL! Anyway I took a lot of time painstakingly applying ink to make this a perfect Bella image and I messed it up! I ran it through the Xyron upside down! So the sticky was on the front :( I don't use it very often as I try to save it for special things, this being one of them. I forgot which way to put it through. So I brilliantly (how do you like that!) thought I would put a piece of acetate over it so it would use the sticky and still be able to see all my hard work! I put the acetate on it and - who would know - the sticky came off onto the acetate! That was kind of a cool thing, so if you ever get Xyron sticky on something you can use acetate to lift it off! OK so back to the image, now the sticky is off and I decided the acetate looked really cool over it so I put it back on and used brads to hold it down. I am thrilled with how it turned out! I used some really pretty older Basic Grey paper and matched the colors to it, did some doodling on it and stamped birthday wishes and here ya go. Oh the ice cream cone image was given to me by the person who RAK'd the SweetieBella image, it isn't part of the Bella image. She just put it together and it is perfect for it! I put a little bit of Stickles glitter on the ice cream. I will be doing a lot of Birthday cards as I have signed up for the Birthday RAK on SCS and will need lot's of cards :)
