Christmas Card in Pink

For my card today, I tried to incorporate as many challenges as I could that are Wednesday challenges. I began by choosing a Christmas theme, threw in some embossing, ribbon, bling, the color pink, and  a sticker, used digi image,  recycled some beads from a bracelet, and put it all together in a sketch. Are you following all this? This is the card that resulted and the Wednesday  challenges that I entered are:

Sweet Sketch Wednesday:  #117 shown below.
For Fun Challenge: Christmas in August. I know it is Sept but this challenge was posted in August.
Cooking It Up with Katie: Use Pink, Add some Bling, Include a Sticker (Celebrate is a sticker)
ABC Christmas: R for Recycling and Ribbons or Rhinestones. The pink Rose beads are recycled from jewelry.
Truly Scrumptious: Rocked Up Pink-use mostly pink which I did.
Fab N Funky: Go mad with embossing. Used Snowflakes and Dots on mats.
Other Challenges ( Not on Wednesdays)
Meljen's Challenge: No Patterned Paper - SOLID Card stock ONLY! No patterns used, only embossing which I highlighted with ink.
Stamp Something: Digi Day...use digital image.
Crafty Catz Challenge:  Monochromatic - use mainly one color and shades of that color.
Alphabet Challenge:  P is for pretty pastels.
Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge: Bring on the bling. Breaking one of my own rules. I like to always use a stamp from the company for their specific challenges, but in this case I hate to waste the bling and not enter this challenge.  I will try to also make a card with bling using Mark's Finest Papers stamp.
Stamps: Meljen's Candy Canes
Ink: Memento Angel Pink, Brilliance Moonlight White, Copics
Silver Jelli-Ink Pen, White Gel Pen, Sakura Clear Star Pen
Papers: GKD Ivory CS, Bazzill Pink CS
 Sticker: Makin Memories
Cuttlebug EF Snowflakes, Swiss Dots
Nesties Oval and Scallop Oval Dies
Rhinestones, Ribbon from Stash
Rose Jewelry Beads Recycled

I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
