Three kings

   The theme for this week's challenge at Eureka Stamps is Christmas in July. I matted black card onto gold mirri card and then white card. I also matted the sentiment (11202(509)) 'May the gifts' onto gold mirri card and attached this to the top of the card. The image (12401) '3 kings' was coloured using Promarkers and silver and sparkly gel pens. I then cut this out and attached it to the card using foam pads. Finally I added some gold star sequins to the background.
