What Song? at Crafty Friends

Morning Everyone
Well, it looks like we are set for a fabulous weekend weather wise here in the UK.  I have some DT cards to do but off to a barbecue party tonight so all is good.  

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Crafty Friends and our theme for this challenge is:
Inspired by a song

You can enter any project you like but don't forget to tell us what song has inspired you.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Melonheadz and the winner will receive a digi bundle of their choice.

I have used this cute Snowman image from our sponsor and my song title is 'Frosty The Snowman'.  I know, very original lol.  I kept the card quite clean and simple.  I embossed some white card with swiss dots and mounted onto some red card.  The image was coloured in promarkers and fussy cut out.  Added some thin ribbon and some glittery snowflakes from my stash to finish the card.  I am trying to come up with a design that could be mass produced in readiness for my christmas cards.  This would certainly fill that brief.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  For more inspiration just pop over to Crafty Friends challenge blog.
