QuestionCustom Control Styling Pin

I have created a Hyperlink control. What I want is to have a default style in my control itself, but allow consumers to restyle it later, like when It's dropped into a window.

So here's my control's XAML:
<ResourceDictionary xmlns=""

    <SolidColorBrush x:Key="hyperlinkMouseOverBrush" Color="Green"/>

    <Style TargetType="{x:Type local:MaroisHyperlink}">

        <Setter Property="FontSize" Value="60" />
        <Setter Property="Hyperlink.TextDecorations" Value="None" />

        <Setter Property="Template">





                                <TextBlock Text="{Binding LinkText, RelativeSource={RelativeSource TemplatedParent}}"
                                           FontSize="{TemplateBinding FontSize}"/>







            <Trigger Property="IsMouseOver" Value="true">
                <Setter Property="Hyperlink.Foreground" Value="{StaticResource hyperlinkMouseOverBrush}" />
                <Setter Property="Hyperlink.TextDecorations" Value="Underline" />

            <Trigger Property="IsEnabled" Value="false">
                <Setter Property="Hyperlink.Foreground" Value="Gray" />
                <Setter Property="Hyperlink.TextDecorations" Value="None" />



Code behind:
using System.Windows;
using System.Windows.Media;

namespace Marois.Framework.Core.WPF.Controls
    public class MaroisHyperlink : ControlBase
        #region DP's
        #region DP HoverBrush
        public static readonly DependencyProperty HoverBrushProperty =
                    new PropertyMetadata(new SolidColorBrush(Colors.Black)));

        public SolidColorBrush HoverBrush
            get { return (SolidColorBrush)GetValue(HoverBrushProperty); }
            set { SetValue(HoverBrushProperty, value); }

        #region DP LinkText
        public static readonly DependencyProperty LinkTextProperty =
                    new PropertyMetadata("MaroisHyperlink"));

        public string LinkText
            get { return (string)GetValue(LinkTextProperty); }
            set { SetValue(LinkTextProperty, value); }

        #region CTOR
        static MaroisHyperlink()
                new FrameworkPropertyMetadata(typeof(MaroisHyperlink)));

Some of this works:
- LinkText DP works. I can set it's default value and that shows up when I put the control on the window. Changing it in the window works also
- The FontSize setter at the top works.
- The Hyperlink.TextDecorations does not.
- None of the triggers at the bottom work.

In the Window
<Window x:Class="Marois.Framework.Core.WPF.Controls.Demo.MainWindow"


        <Style TargetType="{x:Type marois:MaroisHyperlink}">

            <Setter Property="Foreground" Value="DarkTurquoise"/>
            <Setter Property="HoverBrush" Value="Brown"/>
            <Setter Property="FontSize" Value="18"/>




        <marois:MaroisHyperlink Grid.Row="0" 
                                LinkText="Click me!"

                <i:EventTrigger EventName="LinkClicked">
                    <i:InvokeCommandAction Command="{Binding MaroisLinkClickedCommand}"/>



In the style
- The FontSize works
- The HoverBrush does not work
- The Foreground does not work

So basically I can style the FontSize, but nothing else. I'm not really sure how to make this all work. I'd like it to be like any other 3rd party control - Have default values that you can restyle.
If it's not broken, fix it until it is.
Everything makes sense in someone's mind.
Ya can't fix stupid.
