Christmas Blues

Hi all, first may I thank you for your kind wishes for my mum, her back is still hurting her but she says that if she went to the doctors they would just tell her to rest.  I am a little worried about her as she will be 92 in November and this sort of fall is not good for anyone especially her age.  She usually stays with my sister three days of the week but since the fall she has stayed at home as my sister and her husband go out everyday and do a lot of walking which my mum can't do for the moment.  Anyway I wanted to thank you all for your concern.

I made this card yesterday I had already coloured the image and thought that while there were still a few Christmas challenges about that I had better get on and finish it.
I have used an image that I got from Funky Kits some while ago but she remains one of my favourites, I have coloured her in blue using Copics.  The papers are Bearlymine, the centre panel I used my SU border punch on, I added some ribbon and a stamped LOTV Christmas sentiment.
I also added a blue gem and some flowers that I recently purchased from Crafty Emma's Store.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
