Open paper 3 and re-size by 25%.
Open the tube and upsize by 900 height; sharpen by 4 and then add to the canvas.
Move the tube slightly to the left and DS both sides; merge with paper.
Apply the mask, add a new layer, flood-fill white and send to the bottom.
Erase excess and center in the canvas.
Open the branch, re-size by 20% and near the bottom left of the design. Duplicate, mirror and then rotate by -40.00. Move them together where the clean parts are and then merge.
(You should see both clean branches extending away for the branch bundles.)
Open the flower, re-size by 25% and add above the two branches. Re-size the 25% flower by 65% and hold.
Re-size greenery (blue stem) by 25% and add below the white flower layer. Rotate by 40.oo and then position; erase excess (if showing).
Open snowman, re-size by 20% and add below the white flower (left).
Add the new white flower: one above the snowman and one below the star.
Open the star, re-size by 20% and add below the small flowers; rotate slightly.
Add any special touches now and then crop or re-size to needed size. Stop and save now if you do not wish to animate.
On to Animation!
Merge mask/tube layer with white background. Add three layers above this.
