Celtic Design

I saw a card at a craft fair recently, which using metal stencil with a Big Shot to emboss, then using inks to colour.  So, today I've been playing around with some of my stencils.  I googled to find the sandwich I need to emboss using the stencil. (Cutting plate, stencil, card, embossing mat, cutting plate.  I left one of the flaps on the platform down.)
 I used one of the embossed patterns on this card, made with a Dreamweaver stencil.  The embossing doesn't show up very well on the photo, but it's really raised IRL.  I used Adirondack 'Aqua' and 'Purple Twilight' ink pads.

 I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:
