Oh Joy It's Your Birthday - Double Trouble Challenge #30 "Background Technique"

This card is my DT card for Double Trouble Challenge #30 "Stencil/Emboss Techniques for background" and if you include Twisted Sister's optional twist "include a farm animal" you would then be eligible to enter your project in our partner's blog challenge 2 Crafty Critter Crazies "Critters".  

This was such a fun card to put together.  The barn is a cricut cut that appealed to me because it had pockets for a gift card.  The cricut die cut tags were modified using a piggy stamp from MFT and added several of their sentiments on the tags.  

Decided to use stencils for my background which were ordered some time ago and though the small cloud and rolling hills stencils were just what I needed.  Colors were sponged on and then adhered the barn and animals using 3D thin foam tape between each layer.  The most time-consuming was putting the barn together, but I'm so happy with it.  

THING 1:  Touble Maker 
Use a stencil technique in your project using spritz, paint, sponge, etc. OR if you don't have a stencil use an embossing folder. You can make a stencil using a die or cutting machine. In other words, no design paper for your background.
THING 3: Twisted Sister
Sing along with Old McDonald (song) and include a farm critter on your project. Even if your farm critter is not in the song, we can always add another verse!

This is an OPTIONAL TWIST but you will be awarded an additional chance in Double Trouble's random prize draw if you include a "farm critter".

THING 2: Double Dare
If you have included a farm critter you can enter your project into 2 Crafty Critter Crazies Challenge #27.

Love the barn - it almost looks like a cascade card! The piggies are too cute - I especially like the "for your piggy bank" stamp.
