Coastal Cabana Holiday

My card today is for the last HYCCT challenge"Another year in the books" I can't believe October is already over, where did it go? The challenge was to create a card inspired by a childhood book. Since I didn't have any "Pooh" stamps, I chose a Laura Ingals Wilder book, Little house in the big woods. I loved the books and the series that was inspired by them little house on the prairie. 
To make y card I started with a piece of watercolor paper and masked off the bottom, that would be my "snow". I mixed some Coastal Cabana Re inker, one of my favorite Stampin Up colors with some alcohol to make my own spritz and spritzed my watercolor paper with it. I removed the mask and stamped a tree from the set Festival Of Trees several times, some using the entire tree and others only using a portion of it.  I added a house  and greeting form the Holiday Home set  to finish it off.

 I am entering this one in the challenge at Less is More, non traditional christmas card.
