Frosty the Snowman

Good Morning,
Welcome to another challenge at  I Love Promarkers.
This fortnight’s theme is…
Snowman
We would love to see your creative projects that include a snowman of any type.
Our fantastic sponsor for this challenge is
Col Art ( Letraset)
For my DT card I chose this gorgeous snowman by Power Poppy Stamps
I just think it has such a vintage look about it.
I needed to make a masculine card for my 16 year old nephew and thought this image was not too twee and the papers are perfect for a masculine card.
As always the image is coloured with Promarkers.
The sentiment was made on my PC.
The trees and ribbon are from Nitwit collections Comfort and Joy and Simple Oys of The Season - both re-coloured in a graphics program to match the colour scheme of the card.
