Lovely as a Tree Watercolour Card

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with something a little different. I was given this 'Lovely as a Tree' set by Stampin' Up for Christmas and thought I would play with some different mediums to give me some different textures and effects for my cards. I stamped the image on watercolour paper using Stazon. I then coloured them with watercolour pencils and then added water to encourage the sky to bleed into each other like a real sunset. I cut round this with a nestie and embossed it. I placed this on foam pads for some dimension and used Dovecraft Garden party papers as my base.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
