Tea Bag Xmas Tree 2 - Scene

I mentioned the other day, after making my first Tea Bag Xmas Tree, that I had an idea percolating in my brain, hatched while riding the bus...

Part of the thought didn't work out, but the rest did. I had originally wanted to make the tree with all the split leg tea bag shapes, but it didn't look right so I instead did alternating shapes. I also wanted to incorporate the reindeer and Pine Trees and to make it a scene for a mantle.

It is finished in the back so it could be placed where it's viewed from all sides.
I really love the way it turned out. There are a few other details, and if you wish to read about them, just click on the image.

I'm also using Quietfire Design rubber stamp - one of the latest Xmas stamps - just so appropriate for this, "let it snow..."

And it fits for a few challenges:
Ooh La La Challenge #68 inspired by an Xmas song "Let it Snow"
Wild Orchid Challenge #11 Victorian or Old Fashioned Christmas (the paper has all old fashioned musical images on it and the feeling of the scene gives me an old fashioned Xmas feeling)
Stamp with Sarah Kay #119 Snow
Digi Doodles Shops Best #36 Let it Snow
Suchins #34 Inspired by Xmas Song "Let it Snow"
City Crafter #34 Snow
Flourishes 3d Xmas Gift
