90th Birthday

Today's card is a 90th birthday card.
I wanted to make another angle card, but the dimensions I used on this card here were too big for the patterned paper I wanted to use.  I also wanted the panels slightly wider for the sentiment. So I tried starting off with a 6" x 11" piece of ivory linen card, which I scored at 2 3/4", 5 1/2" and 8 1/4".  The angle was cut the same as in the last angle card, measuring up 1 1/2" from the bottom of the left hand side.

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:
