Tree-mendous Day!!

I made this card for my sister-in-law's birthday.  I hope I'm not jumping the gun by posting it, but I mailed it last week so she should have it by now.
ALL paper is from The Paper Company's value packs unless otherwise stated.
I started this card with a 5 1/2"x 8 1/2" piece of light blue cardstock and folded it in half to form the base of my card.  Then, for my first layer, I cut a piece of orange cardstock at 5 1/4"x 4" and attached it to the base of the card using my ATG gun.
I then cut a darker blue piece of cardstock at, I believe, 1" and a green piece of cardstock at 2 1/5".  I layered the darker blue over a little bit of the green and attached it using my ATG gun.  I took a piece of teal and white poke a dot ribbon and wrapped it around the two pieces of card stock and adhered it with Scotch tape on the back.  Then I used the "My Pink Stamper Cheater method" to add a little bow to the ribbon.  I attached the whole thing to the card using my ATG gun.
I cut the tree at 3 1/2" from the "Create a Critter" cartridge with my Cricut Expression.  I used The Paper Company's value pack papers for all layers except for the last layer of the top of the tree.  There I used a green, light blue and orange plaid paper from DCWV Animal Crackers matstack.  This paper gave me the colors to use for the rest of the card as well.  I attached the tree to the card using 3D-Dots.
Then to finish it off I added a My Pink Stamper stamp from her "More Punny-licious" set using a Stampin Up! Classic, Pumpkin Pie, ink pad for my sentiment.

I haven't heard from her on how she likes it yet, or even that she got it, but I'm sure that she will love it!!!

Happy Crafting!!!!
