I stamped the images/sentiments on Xpress-it paper, colored with Copic markers and then cut them out (leaves/acorns are fussy cut).  I chose a navy blue card base, added green card stock and then placed the images on each panel.  All images/sentiments are from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps except for the tree & clouds (those are from the Stampin'Up set called Sprinkles of Life).

If you like this tall Z-fold card and would like to create it yourself, here are the measurements I used:

First:  Sweet Birthday Wishes
I printed the image on Xpress it paper, colored it up with Copic Markers and fussy cut it out.  I chose a mustard yellow card base, added patterned paper with multi-colored circles and a sentiment on clear plastic.  Once it was assembled, I added some dark blue enamel dots to complete it.
