Colour Challenge - red, white and aqua

Another challenge from Shimelle......create a project in red, white and aqua......and she has some wonderful examples on her blog.
I decided to go back to a card for this one......another christmas card.......not a combo of colours I'd usually use......but I love them together......and that's what I love about Shimelle......she always manages to inspire.....I think I may be making a few christmas cards in these colours.
All made from papers in my scrap box......and fits a few other challenges as well......Crazy Challenge and Secret Crafter want 'christmas.........City Crafter wants 'scraps'........and The Ribbon Girl wants 'ribbon'

I would never have thought to put red and aqua together but look how beautifully they co-ordinate on your card. Lovely!

Beautiful! I think this color combination would work really well for a snow scrapbook layout, too.

This is one of my favourite colour combos at the moment...I noticed it in some artwork in the coffee shop in John Lewis in Newcastle, and decided I was going to use it when I came home...wonder if Shimelle has been there too?!:) Love what you did with it
