Alternative Christmas Colours

Hi everyone, today's card uses an unusual colour palette for a Christmas card, but I think I quite like it. Unfortunately, the sparkly gems didn't scan as true colours, they match the papers perfectly in real life.
I've used another of Mo's adorable images. I've had this one a couple of years now, but I still love to use it every Christmas.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
The Sugar Bowl - Sketch
Charisma Cardz - Cutesy Projects
Crafts & Me - Let the Music Move You
Colour Create - Turquoise, Deep Pink and Ivory

Card Details:
* Image - Digital Pencil Too - Monique
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - Papermania 'Blueberry Hill'
* Everything else from my stash

I'm getting into quite a routine with my cardmaking now and I'm thoroughly enjoying it, but it will still be nice when I've finished all the xmas cards and can make what I want again.
