Forever Friends Christmas

Hi Everyone
Before I get onto my card for today I would like to share some exciting news with you.  My crafting journey continues as I have been lucky enough to be chosen to be on the design team for Dream Valley Challenges.  Thanks to Melly and the team.  Looking forward to the journey together.

Now for my card for today.
Yet another christmas card.  I am slowly working my way through my list.
I have followed the sketch over at Sketch and Stash.  The image is obviously Forever Friends and these were a new addition to my christmas stock this year.  I die cut a circle to mount the image on and embossed this with little dots.  The white card at the side was also embossed using a snowflake embossing folder.  I die cut some snowflakes for the top right hand corner of the card.  I added some white ribbon which I recently bought.  A few snowflakes from my stash and a sentiment completed the card.
I am quite pleased with the way it turned out and it was quite quick to do.
Heres another picture
Must admit not very easy taking photos at the moment.  Just seems dull and grey outside most of the time which doesn't make for good photo taking conditions.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Sketch and Stash - challenge 75
Forever Friends - white and sparkles

Thanks for looking and please feel free to comment.  I love reading them.

Hi Mags. This is SO cute. Your sparklies are precious! Yes, they are obvious...your picture wasn't so bad because of the weather! I love what you have done with the embossing folder! It is really pretty. And the corner...oo lala very glittzi! Very inventive with your ribbons on the bottom and then the sparklies on top. Very very nice Mags. Good success with your challenges and of course ours at FOREVER FRIENDS. Spirited Love for the season, Samara
