Winter Birthday

I really do wish the weather would figure out it is supposed to be winter - I am so sick of the rain now! My garden is just a big boggy sludgy mud flat lol.

So to make me feel better I decided to make a postcard for a Winter birthday, using some Christmas patterned paper from Marianne Designs as the base.

I stamped the acorns from a Winter Wonderland free stamp set, then stamped them again onto scrap paper. I fussy cut the image on scrap paper and used it as a mask. I then stamped the house image over the top. I coloured the image using watercolour pencils from WHSmiths and finished by stamping the sentiment from the same stamp set in Pretty Colour blue ink.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
