We Three Kings

This week's Winter Wonderland challenge is 'While Shepherds Watched or We Three Kings'.  I found this black sparkle Three Kings peel-off in my oddments drawer and thought it would be perfect for the challenge.    As the pink/purple/black are contemporary colours for a Christmas card, I've also entered this card into the Sparkles Christmas Challenge which is 'Contemporary Colour Combo'.  I'm back in the playground this week for Pixie's Crafty Workshop as all the papers came from my snippets drawer.

I attached the peel-off onto white pearlescent card and layered it onto purple mirri card.  I then layered snippets of pink spot and pink checked paper onto purple mirri card and attached it to the front of a white pearlescent card blank.  I covered the join in the papers with pink/purple stripe paper and a strip of black sparkle peel-off which I had saved from the edge of the peel-off sheet (I hate throwing anything away!).  I then attached the topper to the card front.
