W2CB #36

"Winter Is The Time For Comfort" Those are the words for this month's challenge over at Words 2 Craft By.  When I saw this I immediately thought of the set by SNSS and the little cup of hot cocoa.
I haven't played in any challenges for many months and I apologize for that and I will try to get back on track. 


I started by sponging an area of blue on my main panel then paper pieced the image which was colored with Copics on top of the blue.  They are hard to see but there are several white embossed snowflakes surrounding the image and then the two larger blue ones in the corners.  I sponged the white panel with Lavender Lace ink.    The purple layer is some light and dark squared paper I've had for years and  I sponged the edges with Perfect Plum.  The last layer is Tempting Turquoise.  The sentiment is from the same SNSS set titled Snowman Soup.   
It is getting quite cold here in our neck of the woods and we may get snow by morning so this challenge and card seemed quite appropriate.  Thanks for stopping in for a visit, I really like the company and I wish you all a good weekend and Happy, Healthy New Year.
