Almost Stumped by Stencil Challenge

One of my favorite weekly challenges  is Joan's Touch challenge and this week it was a very challenging one for me.  We were to
-use a stencil (Option was to use shadow technique)
-combine 2 Patterns of Papers
-make a card, a book, a note.....
-use a product sold at Joan's Gardens

The difficult part was to use a stencil...I only own 3 stencils which were bought at garage sales.  Finally I came up with a plan to make a card for  Joan's Touch Challenge using a Birthday Cake brass stencil (50 cents at the garage sale) with papers from Heartfelt Creations Classic Editions Collection purchased at Joan's Gardens.  I laid the stencil on a panel cut from the collection and colored in the stencil with markers and gold metallic pen.  I did not try the shadow technique. Using a double sided  pattern paper for the card base, I attached the image with a mat and a strip of another pattern  to the front of the card.  I used a clear epoxy sticker from Cloud Designs to create a Birthday Card.   I finished the inside with another panel stamped with a verse from Creative Vision Stamps using Memento Rich Cocoa ink.  The pattern paper shows up really well in the bottom photo of the inside of the card.

I am going lalalalalala while looking at the beautiful card you created with that stencil. I have bought too many lately and need to not buy more. So glad you got your at a garage sale and I can't find it easily. ;-) The card is totally fun and lovely at the same time! I really like hot you painted your image and the candles are fantastic!
