Color Hues #28 -- Red and Kraft

I'm a newbie at playing along with Color Hues Challenge. I consider myself color challenged 
and usually take forever to come up with a design after given the color choices.
I can't think fast enough.
Challenge #28 with RED and KRAFT seemed simple enough and I had an idea in mind
for the design. And how fun is that gif?

Ironically, I used stamps and dies from two companies that are no longer in
business, and I consider myself lucky to own their products.

Neat and Tangled 's Warm Winter Scene Cover Plate has always been a
favorite and those little trees won me over years ago. I cut the plate from 
a scrap of alcohol inked paper. 

The trees were cut from white card stock and I adhered all the pieces to a
mini slimline kraft panel. The perfect Paper Smooches sentiment was white 
embossed and I added some "snow" with Nuvo Drops and a white gel pen.
 Thanks for stopping by! I hope you're off to a good week!
