For this fortnights challenge over at CC&CC we are sponsored by Eureka Stamps and the theme is Happy Holidays! Can you believe how close Christmas is now? 
I hope you're all a bit more organised than

The image I picked for this challenge was Three Crowns. I wanted to make a CAS Christmas card and I thought this image would be perfect!

I coloured the crowns in nice bright rich colours and for the gems on each crown, I either added real gems of some sort or clear embossing powder to create a nice shine :)

The shining north star has been cut out of the white card that the image is printed on and gold mirri card has been mounted behind it.

I was going to leave the card without a sentiment, but although I wanted CAS, it just didn't look right, so I had this 'Merry Christmas' floating around in one of my 'bits and pieces' boxes, so I cut it down, inked the edges, popped on some 3D foam pads and mounted it in a central position. I felt it helped just finish it off.

I really enjoyed colouring this image :) Don't forget to pop along and take a look at the other fabulous images the DT have been using.
