Lovely as a Tree landscape

Hello, welcome back.  I saw a card similar to this on Pinterest and I fell in love with the sponging and the reflection so I thought I would give it a shot.  I started with a base of Pool Party (8 1/2 X 5 1/2, scored in half) and then a layer of Basic Black (5 1/4 X 4).  My next layer started out as Whisper White (5 X 3 3/4), but with all of the sponging, you would never be able to tell.  I started and sponged both the top and bottom of the white with pool party.  I then masked it off with post-it notes and sponged in Smoky Slate.  I tried to make it look like mountains with it being a little darker at the top.  I then did the same thing to the bottom creating my reflection of the mountains.  I used the Archival Black Ink and stamped the trees from Lovely as a Tree stamp set.  I stamped the same image on vellum card stock and flipped it over, making sure to line up the trees, and then just rubbed it over my sponging.  I wasn't sure it was going to turn out, but love how it did.  I then sponged a little more at the roots of the trees for the ground.  I used the stamp set And Many More for my greeting.
Thanks so much for stopping by, I appreciate it!
