ODBDSLC88 - We Three Kings

Welcome to another week at ODBD's Shining the Light Challenge. This week Chris has created a sketch for you to do...



And I am deeply honored because this sketch was inspired by a card I did a while back that you can see here.

And here is another interpretation...



This is a deeply personal card for me. As I shared with some of the ladies I design with, this is a little more "rustic" than what I am used too. I wanted to incorporate ODBD's We Three Kings stamp set into a card this year. When I saw this scripture, I immediately knew what I wanted to do. I selected purple card stock to represent the Magi and the greatest King of all, Jesus. I used touches of gold card stock (cut with Spellbinders Ironworks Motifs) to give a regal feel. I embossed the star and scripture in gold. And on the base I adhered distressed kraft paper and then some rough cut burlap tied with jute. I wanted this to represent the trappings that may have been on those beasts of burden and/or in the manger that day... It's very masculine and full of symbolism. I hope you take a few minutes this week to pull out some of your stamps and play along! I look forward to seeing what you do with this sketch! Blessings...

Now how to play...

Lorim girl, you have done it again. I am totally blown away. Yes, this card might be a little more rustic from what you usually do, but the meaning behind it and how beautifully it all comes together make it so much MORE special!! I absolutely love the burlap on the purple and the touches of gold...amazing!! Have a blessed weekend, sweet friend!! Hugs, Sabrina
Ooops, my fingers hit the "m" instead the ","....sorry, did not mean to mess up your name.
