It is quite striking combination!
Take a look at the great sketch today at Splitcoast from the Verve forum...Viva La Verve. As well as the sketch challenge from Viva La Verve this week, there is also a monthly theme, Ornaments and Winter Decor. Even though this is a Valentine's Card, these exact colors are Christmas decor in my dining room.

Here is my card...
