Across the Miles...

...a Christmas card for those far away.

The folk at "Winter Wonderland" set this challenge theme for this week and what could be more appropriate than the 3 Wise Men on their journey to convey Christmas wishes across the miles.
The 'Joy to the World' stamp belongs to a friend and I thought it was a perfect size to use as a window to the image below.
The stamping was embossed with gold embossing powder and then cut out. The inner edge of the 'O' was inked with gold so that there wouldn't be any white edges showing.
The insert continues the Wise Men theme.

I think the stamp might be from Clarity and the PPs were printed from a CD (possibly My Craft Studio but not sure)...I really should pay more attention to what I borrow/share with friends LOL...............................
