Stampin' Up! Friends never Fade and I create a Friendship card

Hi guys! I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas period! I had such a great Christmas, it was lovely to spend some time with my family. I have a card to share with you today.
I used a Basic Black card base, which I layered with some Basic Gray, which was stamped using the bold 'waratah' flower in Black. Once I was happy with that I wrapped some non-Stampin' Up! Ribbon around it and tied a bow. I then stamped the sentiment image from Friends never Fade in Pool Party and cut it out, I layered it on to a piece of Glitter Paper and then some Basic Black. I rounded the corners before finishing this card. 
I used inspiration from the Clean & Simple Sketch for this one, although I altered it slightly to fit my images.  
I have some good news to share too! I entered the ICSketches Design Team call they had earlier in the month, and I was lucky enough to be selected for a four month term over there! *Happy Dance* So, keep your eyes open for my first post from them in January!
So, until next time, 
Happy Stamping!
