Ovals and Trendy Trees

I've had a bit of fun recently with my Trendy Trees set.  This came to me in the middle of the night and I couldn't wait to get up and see if I could make it.  I was only thinking this would be a practise run but it worked perfectly, so I kept it!
The card is my usual 5"x7" and I just lined the embossing folder up in the centre.  That worked out well so I popped one on either side and it came out beautifully.  I decided to stamp directly into the ovals, knowing that I have the large oval punch on standby, so if the trees didn't look right I could punch out a shape that fits perfectly in the centre of the ovals and try again.
The colours I've used are Rose Red and Wild Wasabi which go really well together.  I wanted to make a different style of tree and was really pleased at how well these turned out. 
I'm sure I've seen that Rose Red and Perfect Plum will move from Subtles to Regals, which is interesting.  They didn't really look right in with Subtles though, did they? 
Hope you like my creation today.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
I'm going to hop round and see what you've all been up to.
Happy stamping, everyone
