ATCAS47 - Oriental
I was listening to the music for our church's kids' Christmas pageant on Sunday (I'm the piano player) and parts of We Three Kings are featured. I had an 'aha' moment with the "Kings from Orient" and the current Addicted to CAS challenge "Oriental" (at least I thought I did - see below) and rushed upstairs to make this one-layer card.
I used a Stampin' Up Wisemen/Bethlehem/Star stamp and embossed the star with Egyptian Gold ep (gold with glitter in it for extra sparkle). I finished it off with a Gina K sentiment.
Now I've been back to the ATCAS gallery and see that I'm not the first one to come up with this interpretation - in fact I commented on Sarah's card because it was also entered at CASology's Three challenge this week, but I hadn't consciously put together that she was using it for Orient as well. Anyway, our cards are different (go check out her awesome sponging!) and this will end up as one of the designs for my church Christmas project.
