My "fave" color combo . . . for today!!

Hey there, sweet friends!! Just popping in to let'cha know that there's another fun challenge happening over at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog! This week's theme is to make something using your . . .

"Favorite Color Combination"
Here's what I came up with . . .
OK . . . so, here's the deal . . . my fave color combo changes almost weekly! hehe! This week it's RED and AQUA! I think they're absolutely delicious together . . . especially with these fun DPs from October Afternoon!
This cutie patootie is called "I dunno (redux)" and I think it's the perfect Christmas card image!! You can find this sweetheart HERE in Mo Manning's online store. I decided to make a "criss cross" card since I hadn't made one of these in quite some time. I'd forgotten how much fun they are to make . . . and super duper easy!
My card "recipe" . . .
Image printed on Cryogen "metallic" cardstock
Very Vanilla and Real Red cardstock: Stampin' Up
DPs: "Holiday Style" by October Afternoon
Oval & Scalloped Oval dies: Spellbinders
Lacy edge border: Magnolia
Sentiment Tag stamp: LOTV
Flowers and holly leaves: Wild Orchid Crafts
Glossy Accents on Bella's boots
Copic Sketch markers & colored pencils

A peek at the inside card . . .
And, last but not least . . .
So, there ya have it! One more Christmas card to add to my stack! Someone extra special will be getting this one . . . 'cuz it's an extra special little "work of art." Now, please be sure to pop on over to Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog HERE to check out the gorgeous projects created by my lovely and talented DT sisters! Then, please join the fun this week at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog! Just remember to use one (or more) of Mo Manning's images (you can find them in Mo's online store HERE). Oooh . . . and don't forget . . . Mo is giving away one $5.00 voucher at her online stores for every 25 entries! (selected by Random.Org, of course).
I've decided to enter this card into the following challenge:

I think OA bought stock in those two ink colors cause they sure do use them a lot in their papers. Wonderful choice Pat. The criss cross cards ARE always fun and they look amazing too. Incredible example of your coloring skills lady. Hugs!

Your cards are so fantastic. I love every one of them. I know I'm making better cards than when I first started, but if I can make cards like yours, that would be great. I really appreciate that you show the inside of the card also.
