Frosty the Snowman

Evening Everyone
Just a very quick post tonight before I miss the challenges that this card was made for lol.
Firstly I would like to enter it into the challenge at Winter Wonderland where they are looking for a snowman as the main feature.
At Christmas Cards All Year Round  the challenge is A Favourite Christmas Carol or Song so I think Frosty the Snowman is quite appropriate.
Weekly Christmas Card Challenges suggest that you use an Old / Neglected stamp, so this definitely qualifies.
I'm sure that I had some others in mind, but I can't find where I wrote down my list of suggestions so this will have to do.
The stamped panel was made by sponging dye based ink over a stamped and embossed image and then painting the snowman with bleach. Finally I covered the entire thing with Crystal Embossing powder to give it a bit of bling.
The background paper is from my stash and has been run through an embossing folder before being given a distressed finish with an emery board.
Another Christmas card to cross off my list.
