We Three Kings


     At last, a Christmas card for challenges! Time is precious at best but right now it's at a premium. A few great days in Wales with my parents included some quality crafting time with Mum and we got Dad's Fergie ( Ferguson tractor) going as well. The Big Shop at Snetterton has a big demo day Easter Saturday so we've been very busy organizing that and hanging out lots of lovely new stock too.
 
    Back to Christmas, this card is made using recycled cards and a brad that was sent to me by the lovely Flower Sparkle Ruth. The square card blank is from stash, I'm having a big sort out this week and I've found all sorts of things, the aim is to use up what's already here and resist the temptation to add more! I'll let you know how that goes!
    The picture was a card saved from a past Christmas, as was the purple patterned backing card. I have inked the edges of the card blank to match the blue in the picture, then inked the edge of the purple card with gold to add a little lift, it looks better in real life...honest.  There was a star on the picture but I have added a star brad to give it some dimension over the top.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Jingle Belles - Joy To The Earth (recycle something)
Sparkles Christmas Challenges - Christmas Carol / Song   We Three Kings
Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges - Reason For The Season
Completely Christmas Challenge - Anything Christmas
Crimbo Crackers - Create A Scene
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge - Use Patterned Paper (hope recycled card is OK)
