Wisemen

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well & you're all ready for Christmas! Only 1 more week...YIKES! I think I'm almost ready...I just wish the weather was a little more Christmassy. With the temperatures in the 60's & 70's in the east, at least I think we'll be spared the wearing of the ugly sweaters. We haven't had this warm a December in all the years we've lived here.

My card today is all about Christmas. I used some non-traditional colors but it's growing on me. The strip in the middle is actually part of a large tag I made w/ Distress inks & a little platinum Brilliance for some sparkle. The aqua & lime sparkle layers were die cut w/ curved dies & the largest lime sparkle was embossed on both ends. Though the small manger image was meant to be a postage frame, I wanted to use it on my card so I added the large star from the wisemen image in the center of the postage frame. For the rest of the wisemen, I stamped them on the aqua layer & added some white Prismacolor pencil highlights.

Here's a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used on small nativity image.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend! 
Supplies:
paper: X-Press It white, lime sparkle, aqua, manilla tag

Julie, this is soooo pretty! You combined so many great elements on this card and it is fabulous! Even the colors are fabulous. I always have to study your cards for a long time to soak in all the great things you do on them - this is no exception. Many hugz
