Merry Monday Sketch #29 - Three Wise Men

Hello Friends,
As a Winner for the Merry Monday Sketch Challenge for July, Lesley has invited me to be a Guest Designer this week.  I moved the focal point and bow to the opposite sides. The stamp set is from Papertrey Ink called "Star of Wonder".  I chose the Three Wise Men image and inked it up with Stazon Black and More Mustard, adding two layers of card to make it pop. The DSP was also matted on black to give it more definition.  I added the sentiment, stitched ribbon and a die cut from Memory Box called Star of Wonder to finish off the inside of my card.   Pop on over to Lesley's blog and check out the rules and sketch and come play with us.                                             

Stamps: Papertrey Ink - Star of Wonder
Card and Papers: So Saffron, Very Vanilla, Basic Black, DSP Patterns Stack - Subtles Collection, S/U DSP Print Sampler
