Yet another colour combo

I've had a part used Basic Grey 'Eskimo Kisses' pad in my xmas stash for a couple of years......it's very pretty papers......but lots of them have little pictures, rather than patterns on them......which I find a bit hard to use.......and the main colours are pink and aqua. Are those colours christmassy? They don't really say 'christmas' to me. But I don't want to waste paper......and I thought maybe they'd be ok for some 'girly' cards. 
I think p'raps they do look quite pretty.What do you think?
I used my favourite christmas sentiment..........stamped.......and shrunk.
Crafty Cardmakers, Simon Says and Pretty Little Ribbons want 'anything goes'.......CES want 'pretty girls'

I am a real fan of red and green colours for Christmas in theory, but in reality I often love some of the cooler colours or the alternative ones!
This card is gorgeous, I love all the details, the layers, the stars the white puffy areas and I really like the hanging snowflakes.. what are they?

I think your card is very Christmassy and I really like the papers. Thank you for joining us at Crafty Cardmakers and hope to see you again next time.

The snowflakes are cut off a long chain of clear plastic ones that are meant to to be a xmas tree decoration!!

Not colors I would normally associate with Christmas, but you TOTALLY made it work and I think this is about my fave of all the Christmas cards so far! Okay, but I really love some of those vintage ones too...

Pretty? yes! I especially love the paper with the little houses on it. I love anything house-themed

Not traditional, but they work really well here. I love your main image and the addition of the white 'fur':o)

I think that it is a gorgeous card - the colours are wonderful. Just seen your comment on my blog - such a shame, it would have been wonderful to meet up. I'll have to be more organised next time and see if you are going and then perhaps we can arrange to meet up then :)

I have the tiniest little bit of that set of papers left and I really loved it. Your card is gorgeous Jacky.
