Friendship Card ~ Friends Are Forever {1st Post}

I am going to try something this week...
A challenge if you will.
There are a ton of challenges I like to play along with
some are specifically sketch ones
and some have that as their theme right now.
My plan is to try and do at least one sketch challenge each day.
Here is my first one from Seems a Little Sketchy and Creative Card Crew.
{sketch is down by the challenge links}
I wanted to use this cute image from Digi Darla's for her last challenge
but I found her blog too late to play along.
Friendship, buttons, ribbon, warm clothes, embossing
and the colors blue, white, red & yellow
all inspired the design of this card.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Snowtime Scottie image from Digi Darla Designs.
*Background embossed using the Buttons Background folder from Darice.
*Ovals cut using the Classic Ovals Small and the Classic Ovals Large die sets.
*Sentiment from Peddler's Pack.
*Button from Button's Galore & More.
*Twine from my stash.
*Holiday Ribbon from Michael's.
*Copic markers C-3, BV23, 100, Y11,Y1, R37, B23 and B29
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad.

May your day always be filled with love.
