Winter Sky Palette

Hello from the bitter, cold north. We have been locked indoors for two days with a blizzard and today we have not made it above zero. I think my mojo might be frozen also. I did some essential sewing today and tried to make a few cards too. We have had such beautiful winter sunrises and sunsets this year. The colors have been spectacular.
 My card started with a white, top-folding card base that I inked blended four colors of Distress ink with a blender brush. Then placing a doily to act as my stencil I spritzed the panel with water, let sit a bit and dabbed off the excess with a microfiber cloth. I heat embossed the Beautiful Blooms 3 stamp set from Uniko with Versamark ink and white detail powder in the lower right corner. I coated the flower and leaves with clear Wink of Stella. The greeting from Altenew was also heat embossed at the base of the one-layer card. Finally adding a few Nuvo and Stickel's drops.

This is for the challenges listed below:
Less is More Off-Centered One Layer
Uniko Cool Winter Colors
(I took my color palette from the challenge photo)
AAA Cards One Layer Card
SSS Wednesday Stencil Challenge
