Origami Tree + Create with TLC # 8

Yesterday I was working on a sample for Joyce's and Betty's Close to My Heart booth at the Heirloom Rubber Stamp and Paper Arts Festival in York, PA next week-end (Oct. 11 & 12).  Tuesday I begged one sheet of the CTMH Snowhaven Paper from Joyce to make a few items.   I thought the ornament I posted yesterday turned out pretty nicely.  My next project was to see how the paper worked up when making an origami tree, which is always a show favorite.   I'm "fairly" certain I'll be teaching a card with this tree at the Make and Take table.
I wish you could see how shiny it is.  I gave it a good spritz of Sparkle Shimmer Spritz. 

This card is being entered in these challenges:
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge #197 - Something with a "p" (patterned paper folded into lots of points)
