An Unusual Color Combo

I'm definitely behind schedule with my Christmas cards but I want to use all the stamps I bought earlier this year... well, maybe not every single one...

Today, I'm showing you a card I've made with a stamp from Penny Black that I fell in love with some time ago and finally managed to buy.

Aren't they lovely?
It seems that another favorite of mine for Christmas are critters, and this cute trio is so sweet I couldn't miss it!
For a change from pinks and traditional Christmas colors, this time I've tried with an unusual color combo: kraft and glitter.
If I were asked before this card, I would have answered that no, no, it doesn't work! But I've tried and I'm quite surprised with the result.
I think that these kraft colors are perfect for the critters and that a touch of glitter and sparkle is perfect for Christmas!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
