Christmas Carols are here!

I love Christmas music!  I listen to it through most of the year, and have my own favorites.  When I was told that the Ildi Co challenge for the next round was going to be based inspiration from a Christmas song, I was really happy.  This is the first card for this challenge that I've made:

The inspiration is the song Frosty the Snowman, and how he came to life one day.  These Snopals are so lifelike -- not just clumps of snow, but skiing and shoveling snow, and this one, giving a gift.  I wanted to add the words Believe in magic, but it was too busy on the exterior, so my plan is to decorate the inside using that.

You can play in this challenge too, check out the Ildi Co Inspiration Challenge at this link:

The light blue background was sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer mist and run through the Cuttlebug.  I stamped the acetate top sheet with some snowflakes using white staz on ink and added a couple of snowflake stickers to hide the pop up dots adhering it.  For the main image it's an Ildi Co. Snopal.  I drew the snowy hills underneath and applied stickles, and used liquid aplique on the hat.  The small amount of colouring is done with Copics.
