Rudolph Day challenge

The 25th of each month was Rudolph Day over at Auntys Forum. Sadly the forum closed last week :(
Luckily, Kathy told us about a new forum Craft Bubble II  So some of us have moved to this friendly new place full of inspiration, exchanges and challenges for all sorts of crafters, not just card makers.
And they have a Rudolph Day :)
This month we have been asked to make a card using the colour RED and to include paper piecing.
Here's my card...

I've used a hanglar & stanglar stamp for this card, it actually has angel wings, but I cut those off when I fussy cut the image out. I stamped the base onto white card and coloured with promarkers, then I stamped again onto the red paper (from MME's snowed in paper pack) so that I could paper piece her dress. I used the same paper for the base and the flowers, punched using my SU boho blossoms punch, adding a flat back pearl to complete the flowers.
The white/gold patterned paper was given to me free with an online order of card stock so I don't have a name for it, sorry, pretty though eh? it is slightly embossed and the gold shimmers. I cut out some squares and punched the opposite corners.
Talking of gold shimmer, I used plain gold paper for the leaves. I finished the background with some card candi.
I also paper pieced the bauble that she is holding, using a scrap of paper from SU's Bella Bleu collection.
The sentiment is my own, from my Ticket Sentiments range.

I'd like to enter this at:

Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
Crafty Hazelnut's challenge - cute
Christmas Card Challenges - punches
