A Bat Mitzvah Card for Retro Sketches #82

We are going to the Bat Mitzvah celebration of my friend's daughter Leah this weekend, and I made her a card using this week's Retro Sketches #82.  I based my card on the invitation, which was white with a brown tree with green and purple leaves.  The tree is cut from Dark Chocolate felt, the stars are coated with Glossy Accents, the little leaves have stickles on them, and there is a rhinestone on the exclamation point. 

Supplies Used (PTI):
Stamps:  Trendy Tree Tops, Paper Source Mazel Tov, WPlus9 Monogrammed, CAS-ual Fridays 8 Happy Nights
Paper:  White, Plum Pudding, New Leaf, some other think purple paper from my stash
Ink:  Plum Pudding
Dies:  Trendy Tree Tops, Woodgrain IP
Other:  Dark Chocolate Felt, Glossy Accents, Stickles, Rhinestone

Thanks for Visiting
