'Fall colours' challenge at Birthday Sundaes

The challenge at Birthday Sundaes this week is to create a birthday card using 'Fall colours' and birthday wording somewhere on your card.  I nearly didn't make a card this week as I was certain that I had no papers that would fit this category.  Here in Australia we are in the middle of Spring so I am kind of in a flowery, bright colours kind of mood!  Anyway, I dug out my bags of scrap papers and wouldn't you know it, I found some perfect colours!  So here is my card:

The colours are much more subdued than those that I would normally use but then I guess that is the whole point of a challenge, to use colours / papers / design ideas that you wouldn't normally use.  I used the latest CPS sketch for the layout of my card and rotated it. 
All elements on my card were cut from the 'Birthday Bash' cricut cartridge.
Thanks for looking!
