Happy Birthday Vintage Tricycle

Good afternoon everyone!  I am going to be a bit slower with my posting for the next little while, because like a genius I accidentally plugged the wrong adapter into my lovely LCD monitor... you guessed it... bzzzz--pop!--sizzle--and then a burning smell.  Eeeew.  Luckily I have a very understanding and patient DH.
So for the time being I'm using his laptop (read that last sentence again! :), and it is an established fact that I simply cannot type well on a laptop keyboard.  We do NOT get along.  But especially when I already usually blog one-handed (other hand holding the Ben man while he drools on my shoulder and sucks on my ponytail like a lollypop.  Ugh!)

Anyway, enough about things here in the crazy household...

Here are the challenges:
1) MOXIE FAB WORLD Challenge {I want to Ride my Bicycle!}

2) Crazy Challenge {Distress It}
3) Crafty Creations {Child's Play}
4) SmART Words Challenge {Ribbon me this!} - Watch out Susan....
you happen to have ribbon-a-holic on your hands! ;)

And here's the card:
 It's a gate-fold card, in fact...
 And a little coloring detail:
