Inspired by..."Frosty the Snowman"

Yesterday evening, I was feeling tired and cold and my solution was to get tucked into a blanket on the sofa and watch TV - my solution to everything:) Oh how I love TV - best invention ever!!! Anyway, I watched Frosty the Snowman and couldn't help but think of making a winter card. Usually, my inspiration for making cards has been from other card makers. However, lately, I'm trying to draw inspiration from other places/things. Here's a photo of the movie poster for those who haven't watched the movie:

And here's the card that came to be: 

Lawn fawn 'frosty friends' stamp set, Penny Black 'Giving and Receiving' stamp set, PanArt Aqua watercolor pencils, diamon stickles, glossy accents

I thought of putting a pipe in his mouth and stamped it out on scratch paper: 

Oh it does look a bit funny, so I didn't quite bother to add it in. 

I think the card turned out to be adorable and I'm glad I stayed up late to complete this card. I'm entering this card into three challenges.
  •  Over at Less is Morethe challenge is to create a card inspired by a film. Not sure if it quite fits the criteria, since "Frosty the Snowman" was a short movie and my card is not as simple as I thought it would be, but nevertheless, I hope it qualifies. 
  • The second challenge is over Lawnscaping and the challenge theme is "inspired by." For me, older animated movies, shows, etc are always an inspiration.
  • I'm also entering this into the CAS-ual Fridays challenge - all that glitters. In this case, it's the snow back that's filled with sparkles:) 

My first time entering challenges via my blog - SOOOOOO EXCITING!!!
