We, Three Kings

     I think this is the last of the Christmas images which I had colored way-back-who-knows-when and put into my stash of images waiting to be used.  Unfortunately, I also don't know who made the image so I can't give proper credit.  I've searched through the files where I keep some of my favorite digi companies but as the amount of time I was spending on the search grew to more than three hours, I gave up and decided I'd post the card and hope one of you might know.

     I'm fairly certain I used ProMarkers to color it but it could have been Copics or Spectrum Noir or even a combination of all three.  The crowns are colored with metallics and the jewels in their crowns are done with glitter.  The star is done in silver metallics.  The patterned dp is embossed metallic and the white is confetti CS.  Everything is mounted onto a colored card blank.

     I used one of my plain, square die sets (Spellbinders) to cut the image and the mats.  I added the bow, using ribbon with a sparkly metallic edge, and that seemed to call for a soft ribbon rose to offset it.  The leaves are punched.

     I've now completed all the commissioned cards which were ordered, have sold about a dozen others, and today I am taking all the remaining extras over to the Senior Center.  I have a couple more I need to get finished for the family and a few more gift tags to complete, and then I'm pretty much done with holiday projects.  I still have lots of packages to wrap but I do still have time for that.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Hi Connie! What a beautiful card and wonderful Holiday Hues! I too have digitals that I didn't originally rename to include the artist that made them, and struggle to remember where I found them. I sure try to remember to do that now. Thanks so much for joining my challenge this week :)
