it ended very different from how it started, but her card was the true inspiration for it! I did keep four shapes, but made my circles and moved them around. I used a non SU die for the tree, layering it on Old Olive that I had run through the spiderweb EF. I stamped the owl in black, added daffodil delight to the eyes, then layered it with circles and placed it in the middle of the tree. I wanted the tree to be as visible as possible, so I stamped boo from Tiny Tags onto black, used the pewter EP, then layered them onto circles of DSP and cajun craze. I am so OCD, I am out of the box for me...the boos are not in the same place...haha...and the circles are not symmetrical either.. I did add the SU version of stickles to the tree, moving it around with a qtip so it would be a smattering of glitter, not solid. I couldn't get it to photo as well as I wanted, but needed to get it posted.
Whew! Congratulations Liz! You deserve this! See you in the gallery!

Honestly, Dianne, I have absolutely no idea how you did that tree, but let me just say, for the record, it is absolutely incredible. OCD ... you? NOT. Silly girl, I love where your creativity took you this week.
