Great job! A secret I have- stamp the image first ,then punch it out by turning your punch over so you can see your image. Make sense?
May I offer a suggestion? Your Happy Birthday would pop more if you placed your stencil on top of the embossing and brushed some ink or chalk over it with a dauber.

Thanks for the suggestions! I wanted to add some color, but didn't want it anywhere but the letters!!! Couldn't figure it out:-(
The idea for the circle is a good one, unfortunately, I punched the circle out of the blue, so the pink underneath would show through! I should have just punched a pink circle and layered it on top!
Thanks for the ideas! That's what I love about this place!
