Wise Men Still Seek Him

I loved the Sketch Challenge 202 over at SCS today. Well actually I love all the sketches Rox finds. Did you know you can go to this thread and print out all 202 sketches to have right at your finger tips?? LOVE IT!!

For today I pulled out Treehouse Stamps "Wise Men Still Seek Him" set as I was in the mood for a Christmas card. (only days left.. do you have your cards started??) I also used Ashley's color challenge for this week of Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze and white/vanilla. I watercolored the image with the Baja Breeze and Old Olive ( I have yet to get Kiwi Kiss ink!!). Added a little yellow for the star and some Creamy Caramel for the road. Added stickles to the star and the candle just for a little shimmer.

The distresser tool was calling my name pretty loudly as I've been neglecting it so I pulled it out and went to town. The squares are 1 3/8 and 1 1/4, faux stitching with white gel pen done on all three with the sentiment going on the last square. I added some black Rhinestones to the corners of the main image. The "star" design paper is Ski Slope from the SU mini catalog.
