New Challenge

I found a new card challenge the other day, just as some others are taking a holiday break.  Maybe I should break, too, but I love doing the challenges.  This newest one is The Paper Players.  The sketch for this week is
It looked fairly easy so to make it more difficult, I combined it with the challenge at Friday Mashup - (1) use aqua, chocolate and white (2) make a Christmas card.  Or mash it up and do both in one card.  Now THAT's a challenge.  I thought the best way to use those colors would be to do a peace theme with a dove.  So here it is.
The cut is from CM 'Tis the Season cartridge and the printed paper is from Ornamental Christmas by The Paper Studio.  The plain, yet glittery piece is from DCWV Linen Closet, and the rest from my stash. 

Well, what do you think?  Did I meet the challenges?
