Oldie but a Goodie Challenge - Friends

This fortnight's Oldie but a Goodie Challenge is all about:

'Friends'

Our sponsor for this challenge is:

and the fabulous prize:

I've an adorable Bugaboo Stamps image called 'Winter Birds - Friend', which I coloured using watercolour pencils...adding some Stickles to the snow. The sparkly papers are all by My Mind's Eye, from the 'Countdown to Christmas' and 'I Believe' pads. I distressed the edges a little, then added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Hello Friend' set by Penny Black, and the snowflakes were cut using Marianne Designs and Cuttlebug dies, then coated with more Stitckles. Everything I've used on my card...with the exception of the digi image...is well over 6 months old.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
