LadyBug Birthday!

I made this card a while ago for my sister-in-law's birthday, I just never got a chance to post it, so I am now.
ALL paper is from The Paper Company's Value Packs.

I started out with a piece of 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" brown cardstock, and folded it in half for the base of my card.  For my first layer I used a piece of black cardstock cut at 5 1/4" x 4".  I then layered a piece of light blue cardstock cut at 2 1/2" x 3 3/4" on the top half of the black and a piece of green cardstock cut at 2" x 3 3/4" on the bottom half of the black, I attached them both using my ATG gun.  Then I wrapped a piece of brown grosgrain ribbon around the whole thing to cover the "seem" where the two pieces met and secured it on the back using regular Scotch tape.   Then I used my ATG gun to attach the whole thing to the base of the card.

I cut my ladybug at 3 1/2" from the "Create a Critter" cartridge using my Cricut Expression.  I attached it to the card using 3-D Dots.  The sun I cut at 1 1/2" also from the "Create a Critter" cartridge, and attached it with a 3-D Dot as well.

To finish off my card I used a stamp from My Pink Stamper's Birthday Crazy set for my sentiment with a Stampin' Up! Classic Chocolate Chip stamp pad.   

I hope you all enjoyed this card, I know my sister-in-law did!!!
Happy Crafting!!!!
