Non-traditional Christmas Color

I love being challenged and when I feel I am not, I try to find ways to do it. One of these ways is signing up for a demonstrators online class or party. I recently participated in
 Narelle Fasulo's Virtual Christmas Stamping Party. 
She is just a hoot! You should check her out:)
She had 4 challenges for us to do, played bingo and entered a word scramble.
Challenge 1 is to create a card using non traditional colors. I chose to go with Melon Mambo color.
I used a piece of first frost and placed it across the panel. Stamped the sentiment in tuxedo black and backed it with smoky slate and added a bit of rose thread. I then added a few elements from the Farmhouse elements and a few clear droplets.

I am entering this card in these challenges also:
