One Layer Christmas Card Challenge #24 - Christmas Scene

Hello there,
This is a reminder to everyone that you still have time to play along with the One Layer Christmas Card Challenge.  We have changed the format to Anything Goes with no Twist this year, so I hope you will join us.
For my card I applied ink direct to the stamp with Markers for the scene and then sponged Bashful Blue after I masked off with Post It Notes.  Then I stamped the sentiment, applied some Dazzling Diamonds to the house and foreground and stamped some trees inside my card.
Stamps: S/U's Cozy Christmas, Happy Scenes
Card: Thick Whisper White
Ink: Bashful Blue, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Real Red, Smokey Slate, Basic Grey, Stazon Black
Finishing Touches: Dazzling Diamonds, Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste
Cool Tools: Post It Notes, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Simon Says Falling Snow Stencil, 2 Way Glue Pen
Great to see you here.
