OCC...Holiday Color Combo Challenge

Happy Saturday Peeps!!! 
It is time for another Our Creative Corner Challenge. 
This week our hostess is the fabulous Anne Marie Hile and her challenge for us is a Holiday Color Combo Challenge:

Light Blue, Light Pink, Red and White and it has to have some SPARKLE!

I decide to use some Pool Party Card stock for my light blue. I also wanted to use the Snow men in the Stampin Up "Snow Much Fun" stamp set. I love both of these guys and my only problem is when I use them together I end up with a larger than normal card. This one is a 5 x 5-1/2 inches. But that's OK, this card will be hand delivered, so no extra postage required. 
The snowmen are stamped with black stazon onto some white card stock and I used my aqua painter and ink pads to color. I matted the main image with pool party and pretty in pink. I then used two peices of a top not die cut in real red at the top and bottom of the panel.

I used some of the Stampin Up Silver Glimmer paper to make my 'snowy' hills that the snow men are standing on.

I used some dazzling details on the snowmen and the snowman's snowball, but it is not showing in the picture.
The sentiment is from the same set and is stamped onto the white card stock and punched out with the modern label punch and then I used another punch  in pretty in pink to mat it. I added two little pearls to the sentiment piece.
I  then added some real red satin ribbon and tied a bow. 
The base of the card is embossed with a  non SU embossing folder.
I made this card into a gift card holder by adding a piece of card stock to the decorated inside sealed on three sides to create the holder for the gift card.
