Commissioned New Year Card

I was asked to make a New Year card for a lady to give to her partner.  The request was manly but he liked champagne and flowers.  If my memory serves me right I've never had a commissioned New Year card before.  I have used the champagne bucket and glasses image from Digi Drawn and coloured in with Promarkers.  This time I coloured the contents of the glasses with Sakura Stardust clear pen before adding glossy accents and got a wonderful shine.  I must remember this for future reference.  I cut the image out with an oval die but then thought it too neat so I hacked it with my Tim Holtz's distress tool and then inked the edged.  I have used two pieces of paper I was sent by a friend recently and edged each piece with my Pentouch silver pen.  The card is finished off with some silver wired ribbon which I have had for years and years, some flowers (including one cut with a Marianne die-cut) and a black spring clip.

This card also fits the following challenges:
