Crafty Ann's #51 Be Inspired by a Christmas Song

Another two weeks over and a little over two months until Christmas, so this time at Crafty Ann's we're asking you to be "Inspired by a Christmas Song". My Christmas song is Frosty the Snowman:

I've made a gatefold, acetate card for this challenge (sure they'll have a proper name but don't know what it is!) to give to my two youngest nephews. The snowman image and the backing paper (cobwebs) are both from Crafty Ann's. I've resized the image several times to make a snow family and printed onto pearlised card and coloured with promarkers. The front borders have been cut with a Martha Stewart snowflake punch and the icicles are a Marianne Design die then I've used the waste at the bottom. Card is finished with ribbons, bows, snowflake buttons and a peel off sentiment.
I do hope you'll join us this time, for more inspiration please visit the challenge blog to see what my team mates have created.
