Retiring Birthday

My card share for today is for today's Color Challenge at Splitcoast Stampers, to use the retiring colors on your card.  I used a background stamp that is also retiring Handcarved. The inks I used are Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe, Coastal Cabana, Pistachio Pudding, and Baked Brown Sugar all which are retiring and I have grown to love them so I haz a sad.
I also used the Hello You thinlits, the Four Feathers set and the Feather dies. The greeting is from a new set Guy Greetings

I am also entering this one in the Birthday challenge at
AAA Cards
