a CAS tree card

Okay yesterday I shamelessly professed my love for Authentique Paper and today I'm still loving on it!
 Authentique Paper used: "rejoice" paper, "party" paper, and "elements" stickers

 When I saw the challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays "April Showers Bring May Flowers", this idea for this card immediately POPed into my head.  Now normally my cards never come out how I picture it, but this one did (although I did imagine it with different colors).
So this one's for
 (click on the link to check out the challenge)

The tree was hand drawn and then cut out.  It also has a whole lot of foam tape to elevate it off the base of the card where the wood-grain paper is. 
Also does any one know of a teeny tiny leaf punch?  Because man are my hands tired now!
