PINK Christmas wishes

It's never too early to get started on your Christmas cards and I'm hoping to get some made every month or two so that I avoid the usual last minute rush.

The paper has a delicate embossed leafy pattern with a subtle shine and texture.

I will be giving this card to one of our nieces in person, so I went all out with the dimension.  I cut a sheet of foam into tiny squares and adhered them to the back of the wreath layers (not the vellum ones) using Tombow Mono Multi.  The extra dimension allowed plenty of room for the curled leaves.

Don't you just adore the bow?  It only arrived a few days ago and I am already in love with it.  I popped it in place with four squares of pink foam sheet.
I finished it off with a few sparkling sequins.  ... the placement for the ones on the left was chosen for me, as I could see a spot of adhesive shining through the vellum and the sequin covered it perfectly.

I am going to enter my card in the following challenges:

There are lots of fabulous projects shared each day this week and we have been challenged to create a new project inspired in some way by them.
I was inspired by:

My card uses pretty pastel pinks and soft vellum.
