A Birthday Card & a Couple of Challenges!

Good morning friends, new and old...I hope you are having a great morning!!!
Today I am sharing a birthday card that I made for a family member. There are a quite a few card giving occasions in my life right now. To get through all the card making (I make it sound like I hate making cards, hehe) I have been using alot of challenges that you see around the blogs.
This card is no different, I am using a sketch from Mojo Monday and color Inspiration from The Color Throwdown #104. Both super challenges that bring lots of inspiration.
Here is my card...
What do you think?? I am hoping that special recipient will like it!!
Here are the supplies I used:
Card Stock: Tango Tangerine, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight (Stampin' Up)
Patterned Paper: Nook & Pantry (Basic Gray)
Ink: Old Olive, Tango Tangerine (Stampin' Up)
Stamps: Very Vintage Labels #10 (Waltzingmouse Stamps); Happy Moments (Stampin' Up); Damask Designs (Papertray Ink)
Ribbon: Stampin' Up
Embossing Folder: Vintage Wallpaper (Stampin' Up by Sizzix)
