Red & Aqua Color Challenge

Good Day!  It's Saturday, the beginning of a wonderful weekend, and another challenge over @ Our Creative Corner!  It's a color challenge: red and aqua, and a bit of pink if you'd like.  Sarah, over @ ThinkIng Stamps, is our hostess this month.  This is also her last week. :(  We will miss her.  She has a fabulously fun style, that is uniquely hers.  
This was a difficult color challenge for me.  I think these two colors look wonderful together, but for some reason, I couldn't get them to work together, until...
Here is the inspiration photos:

Here is the card I made:

This card was a bear to create.  But, once I got it going, it turned out to be 'fun' to make.  Christmas is not my all time favorite holiday.  But, it is a wonderful time of the year to get together with family and friends.  I used almost all non SU! products to create this card.
The card base is an aqua mist cardstock.  The pattern paper is a few years old, I believe.  I stamped the sentiment on Vellum cardstock with a Recollections stamp.  I really do love the font of this stamp.  The snowman is a big box holiday find.  I think the snowman and pattern paper work nicely together.  I wanted to add some sparkle to some of the snowflakes, so I added some clear rhinestones randomly.
Now, it's your turn!  Take a look at what the Design Team has created, and play along with us!  You could be our next Top Talent Winner!  (you can't win, if you don't play!)

You sure rocked this color challenge with the thin mats of aqua against the bright red PP. Great card!
