T'is the Season....

Hi and welcome to my blog! Jingle Belles current challenge is called Three Kings, which I though was going to include gold, myrhh ( hmmm, did I even spell that right??) and frankenscense ( another word I've  probably misspelled!!!) , but nope, I was wrong! This week's challenge is to use three different patterned papers from your stash. Well since my Xmas paper is in desperate need of purging this is  perfect timing for me!!!

Here's my card ( with 3 papers from my stash , of course)......

Two of my papers( background and red strip) are from Stampin' Up! and the third ( brown) is from Crate Paper. The sentiment tag is from Heidi Swapp and the cute little girl is from Little Miss Muffet Stamps , colored with my Copic markers. I fussy cut the girl out, added some green rhinestones ( Silhouette brand), and some Liquid Applique , puffed up with my heatgun, for her hat pompom and coat trim. The flower is from Wild Orchid Crafts - originally it was a light blue, but I misted it with some Ranger Delyusions ink ( Cherry Pie) and added a bit of Tim Holtz Tarnished Brass Distress Stain to the edges. For a bit of greenery , I added a few twigs of pine leaves cut from my Silhouette ( for another project) and a few Doodlebug Designs sequins to finish the card off.
I had a lot of fun participating in this challenge...and I just love how my card turned out!!!
Thanks for stopping by.... have a wonderful creative day!

    ps: we *thought* about doing the gold, frankincense & myrrh challenge, but we couldn't spell the last two, either, so we swapped out to patterned papers lol! :) :) :)
