This is Sarosa posting today. I hope everyone is enjoying the season, and not getting stressed out with everything on their schedules! I had a different card in mind, and planned to post this one (which I made this summer) for the next challenge, however, I saw that Cheryl had used the same image in a wonderful way earlier HERE, and I though my posting this now might be extra inspiration for this image!
The obvious thing to do with this image is to color it, and I really wanted to ... still want to! But, I didn't! I decided to find a different way to show case the Three Kings. I wish I had a camera that could pick up the beautiful velvety cardstock I used for the background on the top card and everything on the bottom; the elegance it added is perfect. I also don't know if you can really see that the top card is somewhat 3D; each king is a separate, solid layer of cardstock. The star comes from the Bethelehem with verse image. I stamped it on light gold cardstock and embossed.
