A Card for Two Challenges

It's good to be back stamping again. Last week was a crazy one with my mom having surgery. She's home and on the mend so that's good!
Here's a quick card for two challenges. First, I used the Splitcoast Sketch#345 here. And second, the PPA#106 here. It's to use 1 piece of DSP, 1 punch and 1 sentiment.
I started with some Melon Mambo card stock and added some Cheerful Treat DSP. I matted the polka dot piece with Pink Pirouette card stock. I stamped the greeting from Happiest Birthday Wishes in Lucky Limeade and punched it out with the 1 3/8 inch Circle punch. The Mambo circle was cut with the Circles#2 die and the Limeade one was punched with the 1 3/4 inch Circle punch. I popped up the circles with Stampin' dimensionals. I used the Itty Bitty Shapes Punches pack for the Mambo flower and added a Silver Mini Brad to the center, popping it up with a Stampin dimensional. Finally, some Melon Mambo 1/2 inch Scallop Dots Ribbon finishes it off.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Happiest Birthday Wishes
Papers: Whisper White, Lucky Limeade, Melon Mambo,Pink Pirouette, Cheerful Treat DSP
Inks: Lucky Limeade
Accessories: 1 3/8 inch and 1 3/4 inch Circle punches, Circles#2 Big Shot die, Itty Bitty Shapes Punches pack, Stampin' dimensionals. 1/2 inch Melon Mambo Scallop Dots Ribbon, Silver Mini Brads
