Commissioned Christmas Card

I was asked to make a Christmas card for a lady for her husband.  As she works with my son I asked him if she had a sense of humour so he said "yes" so I showed him the image I was going to use and he said "yes".  I have used a Kenny K image and coloured in with my Promarkers and added some glitter/bling with some Stickles.  I have used some scraps of paper leftover from last years' cards so I am not sure where they are from.  I have added a doily and then tried to do a flower arrangement with some flowers (with Stickles added to give some Christmas sparkle), pins and leaves.  The cards is finished off with some ribbon, pearls, sentiment off the computer and some Bizzy Becs ticket sentiments.

This card fits the following challenges:
