BBTB2 Challenge - Flourished Christmas Tree

Monday and the BBTB2 Challenge this week was to use the Flourish from the "Cindy Lou" cart, I did not have that cart (geeze how can one not have that cart? LOL) so I used the flourish from Cricut cart "Calligraphy Collection".  And where is my flourish?  It is wrapped around the Christmas tree as its garland.  I used brown textured card stock by Bazzill and the panel on the left is from scraps.  The tree was cut with the Imagine from pp on "Snow Angel" and the little bird is also from Snow Angel, I just gave him a little bigger beak and eye. The bazillion stars were punched from a MS punch, the snow flakes were a Marvey punch and an MS punch.  The infamous branch punch by MS was also used. "Merry Christmas" is a StampinUp stamp.
We won't even go into the time it took to triple layer those snowflakes or put stars on the flourish (LOL) but it was all worth it in the end.  Hope every one is coming off their sugar high from yesterday, well maybe it is a little soon, have a great week and Happy Monday. Hugs

Wow Sandi, I sure can tell this took forever to put together. It is truly stupendous. I've been saying I was going to get that "infamous" branch stamp for years and still haven't done it. But this is so incredible I might have to duplicate it.
