Red and aqua

Last year my favourite christmas colour combo was red and aqua......I'm still loving these colours......but I may not be able to make many cards in those colours this year......I'm determined not to buy any new christmas stash......and while I've got red and aqua card stock.......the decorative papers are almost gone......so I've made a few cards using the scraps from last year......starting with this one.
I used the sketch at Christmas Challenges.....and 'anything goes' for the Crazy Challenge.

Delightful card and loving your layers - as always.

If I'm honest I would have to say that the colour combo would never be first on my list either but ...... may have to review that now!

Happy Tuesday

A great colour combination & it definitely works for Christmas...I'm sure you'll adapt what you have to create even more of your stunning cards! :D

It is a beautiful combination - one I really admired last year. I think Sandi has put it perfectly - you'll use what you have to stunning effect!

I really like that colour combination. It is fresh and not too traditional!

Wonderful colour combo- and I love the white fluffy bits around her coat and the bobble x

It looks so fresh and pretty - wow :) I rarely use 'non-traditional' Christmas colours in my own Christmas cardmaking, but I do love the effect when others do, so maybe you've inspired me to try something different this year! x

Such nice balance - the red star and red brads are perfect! I also like the foam fur.

I wouldn't even know you used scraps for this card because it came out perfectly.
