Friend to Friend

I don't know why the yellow looks so intense in this picture..in real life it is a very soft buttery yellow. LOL! I loved the sketch at "Mojo Monday" this week. It just went together so nice for me! Today I was reminded how blessed I am with my friends. Just a sample of who touched my life today, Elaine, Donalda, Glenda, Amanda, Janie, Shirley, Patti Sue (the other one) and a local friend Glenda. Each brightened my day in a different way. I had to stop and say a prayer for each of them as they are such a blessing in my life. I think each of us should practice reaching out to others, don't you?
Now for my card. I colored my darling little Maggie image with Copics. I used one of my new Spellbinder dies to frame her, all of my dp paper is from my scrap box. I added a lovely ribbon (a gift from Amanda). I just love how it sparkles and the swirls are embossed. My sentiment is from an old SU set and framed with a Spellbinder label die. I added half pearls and a rose from LOTV. I used a McGill punch for the fern and a MS punch for the lace edge. A little flower soft added a soft fuzzy tail to the bunny and finished off my card.  I am entering this card at the following challenges:
