Frosty the snowman

OK, OK, I know in the song Frosty had "A corncob pipe and a button nose" but I'm sure that was artistic license and in REAL life he had a carrot nose. They do, don't they? It's some sort of Snowman law.

Anyway, this 'ere snowman was made out of die cut circles and ovals - the crown of the hat is a circle with sectors cut off each side - and definitely has a carrot nose. The background is made by swooshing a couple of different shades of blue ink over the flat side of a folder before embossing, I used my Grand Calibur and Nestabilities circles and ovals dies, the ef was a magazine freebie. And all the cardstock was from my snippets box. In fact even the sentiment was, as it was the very last one from a sheet of Craftwork Cards ones.

I'm hoping to just slip into the Snippets Playground before the gates clang closed for this week and also to share with
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - Use a sentiment
Cuttlebugmania - Snowmen

A great card. All the snowmen I built when I was a child had a carrot for a nose!

Wow! This is just great!!!
I love it all - the embossing, the snowman, his smile, the hat, - all great ideas.
And yes, the nose has to be a carrot. "What else"?

Wanted to ck out your wonderful Snowman card after seeing you won at Cuttlebug Mania. Like that you made the snowman using circle dies. Especially like the blue inking before embossing. Have a BEE-utiful day!
