Greetings in the mail!!

Hi all

Today I am sharing a monocromatic card I received from my upline in California.

This is a lovely card with a dry embossed background.  Sandy used the oval scallop die cut frame in night of navy and stamped the image on plain white cardstock in night of navy ink.  I think the use of a monocromatic format for this card helps to set the tone for the subject of the card ..the arrival of the three kings...classic Christmas image. She really set off the whole card by adding a single rhinestone to the center of the star ... not loud and spashy bling but instead meaningful bling to complete the image.  This is a great card!!  She enclosed a really wonderful picture of the many generations of her family...her Dad, herself, her son and daughter, her son in law, and their three kids....and every one looks great.....sure hope she was lucky enough to catch everyone looking good...I kinda hate the thought of family photos being tweaked to be perfect!!  Thanks Sandy!
