Inspired By Hot Chocolate

Back before Christmas, I was delightfully surprised to find out I was one of the winners from Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas tags.  The prize was a store credit to Picket Fence Studios.  One of the stamps I chose was this image called Jill Girl.
Let me just say, she is wonderfully fun to color up and bring life to her sweet face.  

I colored her using Copic markers and kept the card design simple, using a knitted embossed background to compliment her scarf, mittens and cocoa mug wrap.  
I thought this card would be perfect to enter into the Inspired By Challenge which right now is inspired by "Hot Chocolate".  I'm inspired by the image, but changed up the focal color to aqua instead of red.

Here's what I used to create this card:
 Cozy Knit embossing folder from Fun Stampers Journey.  

I'll also be adding this card to the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by!
