We Three Kings


I am starting to get in to the swing of making festive cards - today I have a card for the current CASology challenge where the cue card is Three:

I masked a square from the cardstock panel and created an inked landscape with torn paper and distress inks.  The stamps are from Clarity Stamp and the sentiment is from Clearly Besotted - it has three words in it to continue the CASology theme!  I like how this turned out - do you?

I will also link up at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge which is to create your own backgrounds.

I will put this in as a cheeky entry at Addicted to CAS where the code word is oriental.  Given the Christmas carol says 'we 3 kings of orient are' I guess that they fit in with the oriental theme :)

Finally I will link up at the Merry Monday challenge as the theme this week is transportation - thanks for the tip, Ardyth!  I have never played in this challenge before but it looks really fun and may just keep me on track with my Christmas card making :)

Thanks for stopping by - I really appreciate it....
