For Tricks birthday last year (one of the big ones) I did a bit of planning for once, figuring out b-day gifts and packaging and cards ahead of time.

I wanted to make something in greens and yellows/orange, something blingy and festive and in any layers. This was the result! I am very pleased with the tree-like figures, the mix of colours, and the tiny festive lights:
