Oh! Christmas tree

Hello! Today we have a non-traditional Christmas challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity, so use non-traditional colours, images etc to create you Christmas creation.

I've made another collage incorporating the skills I've learned so far.

I created this on a non-sticky backed canvas piece. Love how it has held it's shape, although my photos don't show that! 

My tree is a little bit higgledy piggledy, first it sways to the left and then it sways to the right.

Here are some close up so you can get a feel for the texture.

The title which I printed out.

Top of the tree with a Prima butterfly. I tried to stick so many things to the top of this tree and they would not stay stuck, even with glossy accents, so I guess they weren't meant to be! I finally struck gold with this butterfly.

I've got a whole box of rub-ons which I've bought over the years and never used, so I am having great fun using them up now. I came across these Christmas lights and knew they would be perfect for my tree.

The sparkly things are some little sequins I received as a freebie with a package I ordered.I used them all here.

Base of the tree.

I am entering this in at the following challenges:
Thank you for looking.
