An OCC Challenge

I smell like tacos right now, and that is only because I decided to make a card before showering.  You see, I cooked up over 20 pounds of taco meat to feed about 70 soldiers tomorrow.  Some of the ladies from our FRG group thought it would be a good idea to feed the guys when they come out of the field, and I have to agree with them.  One of my husband's soldiers is turning 30 tomorrow so I made him this card from my brand new stamps from the DoodleFactory.  I followed the sketch from Our Creative Corner, and this is what I came up with.
Stamps:  DoodleFactory Creatures
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper:  Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun, Taken with Teal, Neenah Solar White
Accessories:  chipboard, Black Gingham ribbon, slit punch, oval cutters,
 Spots & Circles embossing folder, Forest Branches embossing folder, corner punch, 
Copics, Stampin' Dimensionals
