color challenge card

So it's been a long time since I did a color challenge over at Spiltcoast. I made this card this afternoon for the challenge, which was Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi and Ruby Red. It was a tricky card for me....I kept wanting to scrap it and start over and use a different red. I think since I got Ruby Red I have used it twice! The card still doesn't seem quite right to me, but that's why they are called challenges, to make you think outside your own box...right?! I used my cute little stocking from the hostess set Event Full. I also used my oval nestabilities for the blue oval. I always forget I have them...I need to put them in a spot where I will see them more! Since they are so easy to store...I have hidden them from myself...they take up no room at all!! They are so fun and easy to use! Anyway...I did sponging on all the layers and added some silver brads to finish it off! I dunna know...you tell me what you think...could I do anything to make it better?...or is it just me being too critical with a color combo I am not so into!
what's in it?...
stamps...Event Full

paper...whisper white, wild wasabi, soft sky, ruby red

ink...wild wasabi, soft sky, ruby red, basic black

accessories...silver brads, wild wasabi ribbon

other...blender pen, stamp-a-ma-jig, oval nestabilities, cuttlebug, sponges

oh...also I wanted to share a quick pic of the boys from Halloween!!! Poor Kailee was so sick that she went to bed and missed Halloween but not the boys...they had a blast at the party we went to and made a haul trick-or-treating!! :) Austin & Tyson both decided to be Vampires and Kyler was our courageous lion!! (dad took the pictures...I think had I taken them....I could've found a better backdrop than the garbage cans!!) :)
