Tilda Inspired Christmas Knitting Pattern, Tree in layers

It was in one of those glossy printed books that this plain but striking Christmas tree caught my attention. And now I'm hoping that this Tilda inspired Christmas knitting pattern will bring the same charm to your inspiration and home.

Looking at my image, there are so many ways to make it look more striking, but that's your challenge. I've provided the base pattern, and you improve it.

Deal?
