Alsa to pulseaudio to Alsa - skype only problem

Hi all!

I want to do a setup like this:
some Alsa pcm alias -> pulseaudio server -> pulseaudio sink -> Alsa pcm hardware device
So all programs can work with alsa and I can transfer the sound to anywhere.

I did:

-- /etc/asound.conf
pcm.mycard {
type hw
card 1,0

pcm.pulsed {
type pulse

ctl.!default {
type pulse

pcm.!default {
type plug
slave.pcm pulsed
hint {
show on
description "Default"

And I did:
load-module module-alsa-sink device=mycard

And started pulseaudio:

This way, pulseaudio sink is connected to the hardware through the alsa device "mycard".
Th pulseaudio server is connected to the pulseaudio sink.
And the default alsa device is connected through pulseaudio server.

So my questions are:
Why skype cant work with this setup?
Do I need more plugins in alsa for it to work?
Do I need more setups in pulseaudio for it to work?

Please try this setup, and correct skype for us!!!

Thanks in advance!
Greetz from Brazil!
