O' Christmas Tree

Hello Crafty Friends,
Thanksgiving was a huge success and shopping was too! LOTS of great finds at wonderful prices. Late this afternoon was spent at the craft table. I was able to make this card after Carri, ABusyBee, said "Let's use a tree."
Here is my tree project...
Carri picked the tree on page 57 from Create a Critter. I was a bit concerned at first because it looked extremely plain in the booklet, but after finding the right paper and adding a few embellishments it definitely looks better. 
What do you think about the blue sequins as ornaments?
 Of course, what is a Christmas tree without presents?!?! They were cut at 1/2".
Inside sentiment
Other Materials:
Little Yellow Bicycle paper
cream, blue, and brown card stock
blue sequins
gold star
blue polka dot ribbon
green ink
Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. Me? I am going to work on an order for holidays cards. Loving this free time to create!
