Watercolor One Layer

Hello. I am home sick today but even at that a person can do only so much laying around, right? Just a nasty cold so I am hoping by resting and drinking lots of fluid I can whip it. The two guys I work with either sing for a living or are leaving for an overseas mission trip tomorrow. I thought my germs needed to stay home. Okay enough about me let's get to a card.
The card base is a 11 by 4.25" Canson watercolor paper. I first impressed the hills from some dies I ordered from China. Then I die cut the Essentials  by Ellen Home & Hearth die, the house ad trees. Using an Avery Elle set called Circle It I stamped the snow with Versamark and clear heat embossed it. The using some Distress Inks I water colored the top portion of the card. Tada, one layer with a silhouette of the house and trees. Greeting is from one of my favorite Papertrey Ink Christmas sets, Beautiful Blessings: Holiday stamped in eggplant ink.
I will be entering the card in several challenges listed bellow. Thanks for visiting, Sue.
