Winter Wonderland - Colour Challenge

Good Morning folks!
I hope this Sunday finds you all well. It's been a long week for me - I'm still not feeling well and with that comes a complete lack of mojo and will to craft! :(
However, today is another Winter Wonderland challenge and it is to use the colours 'Satsuma, gold & chocolate' - doesn't that sound scrumptious??! The idea for this card evolved in my head
whilst going to sleep a couple of nights ago! I thought the colours would work perfectly for a sunset type of scene and of course, with it being christmas themed, I immediately thought of the 3 Kings!
The card itself is pretty simple - I sponged distress inks (Scattered Straw, Spiced Marmalade, Dried Marigold & Vintage Photo) onto glossy paper and then stamped the image over the top. I don't think there could be a more perfect punch to use than this Moroccan lace. The star is stamped with versamark and gold embossed. The sentiment is cut out with a nesties circle.
I hope you like it! It was very last minute for me (due to my cold) and I don't like feeling this rushed when I do something, but I think it turned out ok.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit today! As always, I truly appreciate your time to pop by and leave a comment! And pop on over to the Winter Wonderland challenge blog and join in with this weeks challenge - hope to see you over there!
