An Accidental Artifical Snowstorm

Greetings traveller. Today the Lady Commander of Copics and I took to the crafting chambers to work on some new spells using the frostling roots we had collected whilst travelling in the north. We were hoping to create some ice based attack spells and began our experiments at once. It wasn’t long before the crafting chamber was covered in snow and, after a particularly poor miscalculation, a snowman had arisen from the stuff. 

I started this ATC by colouring the Dilly Beans “Holly Heart Snowman” image using Prismacolor pencils. I then used an old Christmas card I rescued from the trash to make the backing.
Back in January I had penned a scroll to all my workmates at the horse and carriage shop requesting any greeting cards that they were going to throw in the rubbish, as I knew I would be able to find a new purpose for them. Last I used a snowflake punch to create the edge and then glued the “garbage” snowflakes that had punched out to the ATC.
Oooo...glittery :)
This festive ATC will be entered into the following challenges:
The snowman looked curiously about, surely wondering what he was doing inside a dwelling.
“Ummm...sorry about that,” my sister called to the snowperson.
He opened his mouth in reply, but before he could get a word out, the Lady Commander, in her haste to correct her error, had already spoken the words to make him disappear. I suppose we shall never know what he was going to say…
