Christmas in Pink

It's been a lot of fun to see the many challenges lately calling for Christmas cards with non-traditional colors (no red, green, etc.), and so it gave me a perfect opportunity to use this adorable pink snowflake paper from October Afternoon.  I added a Martha Stewart doily, two strips of stars and angel wings cut from Papertrey Ink die-cuts, some pink seam binding, a little faux stitching, black baker's twine from The Kraft Outlet, a Melissa Frances rub-on for the sentiment, some gold Stickles accents, and of course, the adorable little stamp from Paper Sweeties. 
Here are the challenges I'm entering with this "pink" Christmas card:
