Happy Birthday! - Retired Wednesday!

I really like this card that I made a while back!  I need to sit and make some more of these ~ just looking at it makes me smile!!

First, I have to credit Teneale Williams for her amazing cards.  Now this lady spends HOURS on one card and the results look it. They are ALL beautiful.  Just check out her blog when you have time. Now waaaaayyyy back in October of last year Teneale made this card:
Grad Congrats By Teneale Williams, Great news now has been updated and you can subscribe to email updates.
Isn't it just so cute???
I just fell in love with it and knew I had to CASE it!  I came up with this version:
Now my card is not NEAR as elaborate as Teneale's card but I spent maybe 20 minutes on this card and I still love it.
The stamp set Blue Ribbon is still available but the paper (birthday cake)is retired. I love this paper and it is almost all gone. It is so bright and cheery.
Here is the inside of my card:
I like the distressed look on this card!  I used Early Espresso ink all over the place!
I hope you are enjoying Retired Wednesday's - I am getting rid of some of my retired paper but I still have A LOT left so you will be seeing Retired Wedneday's for quite some time.

I love your card! and the more time goes on the more I'm liking brighter colors and a more clean and simple look! Could it be.. I need Spring and Summer? Maybe .. but still.. lol
