Christmas 2014 - nearly done

Am I the only one still working on Christmas cards?  Some of you who comment on a lot o-  is the year of the wise men!  I like the stamp - great with no coloring as a time saver - but it is long and narrow so harder to fit some sketches.  I elongated this sketch but otherwise stayed true... I used a scalloped rectangle (Nestabilites) but cut three edges, then repositioned in the die to cut the 4th edge - to result in a more narrow rectangle to fit the image.
BG - shiny augergine cs; stamp - Stampendous; Sentiment - Stampouri; ric rac - very old metallic gold; gold stars; unknown EF.  The use of chalk is sort of hidden but I like the result.  I have a bag of metallic chipboard (adhesive backed) stars that are just a bit too shiny.  I rubbed in a bit of glue and then some powdered chalk.  Voila - a subdued shine much more to my liking.
