Friends Forever

This card is for a good friend who is a horse lover.  I managed to get her hair the same color as hers but wasn't quite comfortable enough with my coloring skills to make the horse look like her horse with the white in the middle of the face.  It is colored with Copics and it's my first time coloring black hair.  Unfortunately, I only had half the shades of black and gray that the YouTube video said I should use but somehow I managed - there is always the next time, right?  The image is by Delicious Doodles and the sentiment is by Netty's Cards.  I used the sketch offered in The Sweet Stop's Challenge this week.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
The Sweet Stop - Sketch #230
Delicious Doodles - Eyelets or Brads
Hiding in My Craftroom - Woman's Birthday
Crafty Catz - Birthday
