Cinema Saturday: Harry Potter And The Sorcerer's Stone

The challenge this week over at Cinema Saturday is to create a card using Harry Potter And The Sorcerer's Stone as the inspiration. I am still in need of a few more Christmas cards, so I decided to transfigure Harry into a snowman. I drew inspiration from the things he learned straight away once he arrived at Hogwarts. He is dressed in his Gryffindor colors of red and gold, which he was very happy to be a part of, and considered other members of his house as friends and some as family. He is holding his flying broom, which he had quite a talent at using. Due to his talent, he became the youngest Seeker ever at Hogwart's. I made the snowflakes out of gold foil to symbolize the Golden Snitch, but they just didn't scan properly. And finally, I threw in the green corners to represent the Slytherin House, which Harry did NOT want to have any part of!

Thank you for looking at my card this week. If you haven't checked out Cinema Saturday, head on over there! It really is a lot of fun, and they give you a picture clue on Friday as to what the movie will be!
