Commissioned Christmas Card

I was asked to make a special card for a lady's mum and dad.  I chose this gorgeous image from Joanna Sheen's Jayne Netley Mayhew CD.  It was already as a decoupage image so I didn't have to work it out myself.  I glitzed up the image with some Stickles to make it seem like the snow was glistening.  I have done some basic matting and layering using up pearlescent paper I've had for about two years or so along with some blue mirri card.  The card is finished off with glittery snowflakes, sentiment off the computer, backing paper off the CD made into the insert along with one side of an insert from Imagination and some fibres.

This card fits the following challenges:
