JUG Challenge, Simon Says Wednesday Challenge, Seize the Birthday Challenge

Here I am in sunny Florida, and this is my first card from my temporary craft room.  Lol
It is trend week at JUGS and I made a card using my stencils and ink and paste.  I also used a die cut to make it a birthday card.  All while watching the Packers beat the Cowboys 26 - 21.  Yippee!

I am also entering this card in Simon Says Wednesday Challenge.  Something New.
                                           SOMETHING NEW
My something new is adding color to my embossing paste.  I added Color Shine in Gold.

I am also entering this card in Seize the Birthday Challenge Anything goes.

Here is the recipe:  GKD CS in Green Apple and Ivory
                                Simon Says Stencil Peppermint Stripe
                                A stencil that I made with my cameo Spray of Stars
                                Color Shine in Chartreuse and Gold
                                Simon Says Die Happy Birthday
                                Pretty Pink Posh Sequins Fresh
