Christmas - in fall colors

I am sure many of you have experienced this - there is a stamp set, or some dp, or other product - it looks great!  Then, when actually using it - you find it is very difficult to work with.  That is the case for me, with this DP stack.  It is called "Faith" by the Paper Studio.  It is not really Christmas paper, but I did purchase it for that purpose - as well as other.  So far, I have not found just the right deep burgundy to use for mats - but here, the light color does work. 
Enough of that.  Here re the details:  image - an unnamed cube.  The bird and bits of branches are Cheery Lynn dies, and the circles are from Spellbinders - all done on the Cuttlebug.
Christmas is coming:

Dorothy, pretty card and great color combinations. I also have things that I wonder why I bought them. You did a good job at using this paper etc.
Thanks for joining us at Joan's Gardens for our weekly challenge.
