A Card for a Sketch and a Color Challenge

I made this bright birthday card for the Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge#158 here, and with the Stamping 411 Sketch#211 here. The colors of the challenge are Pumpkin Pie, Basic Gray and So Saffron.
The base is Pumpkin Pie card stock and I added some DSP from the Playful Polka Dot Simply Scrappin Kit. I ran a piece of Basic Gray thru the Big Shot with the Striped Textured Impression Embossing Folder. I added a piece of Saffron DSP from Just Add Cake. The rectangular Pumpkin Pie polka-dotted piece is a die-cut from the Playful Polka Dot SS Kit. I stamped the balloons from Crazy for Cupcakes in Basic Gray ink on So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie and Basic Gray card stock. I added the wish big sentiment from Pennant Parade to the Pumpkin Pie one and popped it up with  a Stampin' dimensional.
Finally, some 1/4 inch Pumpkin Pie grosgrain finishes it off.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes and Pennant Parade
Papers: Basic Gray, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Just Add Cake DSP, Playful Polka Dot SS Kit
Inks: Basic Gray
Accessories: Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Stampin' dimensional, 1/4 inch Pumpkin Pie grosgrain ribbon
