One layer Christmas Card!

Wanting to get cracking on my Christmas cards I have been stalking the Christmas challenges and spotted a real challenge for me
Winter Wonderland ~ One Layer Cards!
Decided to take the challenge and this was the result!
I struggle with CAS cards as I never feel they have enough on them so I stamped like mad on this which is simply a piece of watercolour paper folded into a card.  It fits into an A6 (UK), A2 (US) envelope so perfect for posting and no bulk!  Might have to make a few more like this!
It is also a perfect card for the 
also because I had to mask my images to stamp the background it also works for the 

Supplies ~ 
Stamps ~  Main Image - Lily of the Valley, Postage Stamp - Inkadinkado, postcard, postmark, background and sentiment stamp all Stampin' Up.
Stamped in Stazon on Bockingford Watercolour Paper 300gsm, coloured with Distress Inks.
Hope you are all having a great start to the week!  
thanks for dropping by!

That is a great card! Is the background a single stamp or did you do the pattern by hand somehow? I like it a lot.
