Puzzling Challenge at The Stamping Boutique

Challenge themes are interesting.  They seem to run in spurts.  When there is an upcoming holiday many of the challenges reflect that in their theme.  The same goes with seasons e.g. April Showers; May Flowers; June Weddings....  Then you have the technique challenges, highlighting new items in the stamping market, dies, watercolors....  It's fun to play the embellishment challenges, loading up a card with flowers, ribbon, lace, sequins, wood, metal, gems, glitter... There are the sketch challenges, color challenges, bingo, tic tac toe, sentiments.... Everyone enjoys the Anything Goes challenges.  The large number of entries proves that.  Personally, I like to be able to combine challenges, which can be a challenge itself.  
You might be wondering where I am going with all this?  
Here's the thing - 
I am totally puzzled as to why no one is entering the current challenge at The Stamping Boutique.  I figure I am sure to be the winner.  It's the second week and my card is the only entry.  And just for good measure, I made another card for their challenge.  
 The digi image is Word Search Brat Birthday Boy from Bugaboo Digi Stamps. I colored the images with ProMarkers; printed a couple extra balloons, fussy cut, gave them a coat of glitter glaze and popped them.  The card is a bit larger than I usually make, but it will make doing the puzzle easier.  Plus, my friend collected a pile of unused envelopes, in great colors and sizes, from the lady changing the card display at the grocery store.  

Challenges I am entering: 
Brown Sugar Challenge #199 - Anything Goes 
Polka Doodles Challenge Week #20 - Birthday Celebrations
Seize the Birthday Challenge - Birthday + optional  Add Dimension
Digi Choosday Challenge Weeks 20/21 - Birthday Celebrations
Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge - Bright Colors 4 Kids
