Warm Winter Wishes -- YNS Fun Friday & CANDY WINNER !!!!!

Hi Everyone!!
Happy Friday to YOU!!!
I have a super cute image for you today 

Here is Sweet Dreams and I colored her up with copics 
and some of my fave blue-green shades of Shin-han makers!! 

On my card, I also used 2 other YNS products:  the Warm Winter Wishes clear stamp set
and the Gumdrops in Ivory at the bottom of my image panel.   :) :) :)

For this month's challenge you can use the inspiration pic, the sketch, or you can make
a fun fusion of both!!   I chose to use the inspiration pic for my card.  :) :)
I loved the deeper shades in the background and the pop of
yellow in the corner.  :) :)  The frosty look in the pic
also lends itself to the frosty night on my DP.

We hope that you will pop over to the challenge blog to join in with us this month!!
There is a fabulous prize and you could also be the next Guest Designer
chosen to work with YNS for an upcoming stamp release!!

The colors for skin & hair are in the upper 2 quadrants.
The colors for her pajamas and the candle are in the bottom 2.

My Blog Candy winner is: SHARLA!!!!!
**Please email me and let me know
which candy you would like!!
CONGRATS, Sharla!!
