Duplicate the tree layer three times for a total of 4 tree layers.
Rename them Tree 1, 2, 3, and 4.
Highlight Tree 1 layer.
Use your Freehand Selection Tool and outline the tree - it doesn’t have to be perfect. We’re going to apply the sparkles to it and you don’t want the sparkles all over your entire image.
Apply VM Natural - Sparkle:
Use default settings accept move the Random Seed button to a number of your choice.
Once you’ve done that highlight Tree 2.
Apply the same effect but move the Random Seed button.

Move into position at the right side of the frame.
Copy and paste Element 13 as a new layer.
Free rotate left 90 degrees.
Move into position behind the other blow - concentrate on only the sprigs sticking up from the bow. See my tag for reference.
Duplicate/close this layer off for now.
Be sure you have the original highlighted and use your Eraser Tool to erase all of the bow accept the sprigs sticking out of the top of the ribbon.
Open up your Duplicate layer.
Move it into position so that the sprigs are sticking out of the bottom of the ribbon.
Use your Eraser Tool to erase all of the ribbon accept for the sprigs sticking out of the bottom of the ribbon.
