H2H Challenge - Birthday Card

Today's card is a birthday card in a 5x7 size to meet the Heart 2 Heart Challenge this week. The challenge is "biggie cards" this week.
I love the Avonlea papers and decided to use those for my card today. They can work for both masculine and feminine cards but I added some ruffled ribbon so I think this is more on the feminine side. I SO wish we could get this shade of dark teal as I am just in love with this colour so I am trying to use it sparingly but it is so hard when you love a colour like that as much as I do!

Supplies used are Close To My Heart unless otherwise indicated: 

Paper: Avonlea Paper Pack (including cardstock available only with that paper pack), Slate Cardstock
Stamps: Avonlea Cardmaking Workshop, Cricut Collection Birthday
Inks: Slate, Twilight Pigment Ink
Accessories: Artiste Cartridge, Avonlea Canvas Shapes, Slate Mini-Medley, Mint Ribbon (unknown), Grey Ribbon (unknown), Colonial White Waxy Flax
