CHNC challenge 117: 3 of something

For my CHNC challenge 117 I'm asking to see '3 of something' on your Christmas cards - 3 of anything. I thought I'd make a start with probably the most well know 'three' of the Christmas story: the three wise men - although actually scripture doesn't say how many wise men there were - we assume there were three because there were three gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

I've used the '3 wise men' image kindly supplied by Floppy Latte Designs, one of the three sponsors for this week's challenge.

The card is based on Catherine's sketch for Sunday sketch & stamp 148:

The top two papers are Teresa Collins Christmas Home and the middle one is an offcut from a Gorjuss kit bought long ago. The strip down the side was taken from the cover of the Christmas Home pad (don't waste  anything - lol!).

As usual, the white doesn't look consistently white (perhaps I'll get a better photo in the morning):
