We Three Kings

I am such a traditional Christmas type of girl and have struggled with trying to come out of my comfort zone.  This card is the colours bright orange, yellow, white and brown - very scary for me with no red or green.  I have used a new Nitwits Collection Nativity package and used various papers to matt and layer, add the three kings, some digital ribbon and flowers.  I then distressed the edges of the paper with Tim Holtz's distressing tool, inked the edges and then used some Debbi Moore orange/brown distressing powder which I've had for ages and ages.  The card is finished off with some bright orange ribbon and card candy.
