Christmas for a Special Friend

My post this morning is a card I have made for a very special friend of mine.  She has always been there for me as I have been for her.  We have laughed and cried together and helped each other through lifes ups and downs.

The base card is red pearlescent which I have layered onto this a sheet of green and grey card, this has ivy going through the design.  I stamped my Lily of the Valley stamp onto white base card which I have coloured in using watercolour pencils and Sakura glitter pens.  I have highlighted the fur on her coat and the top of her boots with Cosmic Shimmer Cosmic Twinkles.  The ground I have added Glossy Accents.  I used Dew Drops Brilliance Rocket Red around the edges of the card after I had cut this out using one of my Spellbinder Dies.  Underneath the ribbon is a smaller die cut card which I embossed with my cuttlebug snowflake folder embossed using Holographic embossing powder and placed this at an angle.  I punched 2 holes into the image topper and threaded gold ribbon through and attached the the green card.  The ribbon has holly running through this with gold edging and is wired.  I cut out a scalloped circle and stamped the sentiment.  The sentiment under the image is embossed with the sentiment Let it Snow which I have distressed over using Dew Drop Brilliance Galaxy Gold.

Thank you for stopping by today.
