Thanks So Much

Well, here I am at two in the morning making cards and writing blog posts.  Being the coffee lover that I am, I do enjoy having a late afternoon, early evening cup of coffee.  Apparently, there is just enough caffeine left in decaffeinated coffee to keep me wide awake until the wee hours.  It's a good thing it wasn't the kind I make in the mornings which is called Night Owl.  The decaf version is called Early Bird which, to me, means it shouldn't affect you and you can still get some sleep.  Fortunately, I'm winding down but wanted to share the card I made for a couple of challenges; the Color Palette Challenge with My Favorite Things and, a new to me sketch challenge from Always Playing with Paper.

Stamp Sets:  Simply Sketched, Serene Silhouettes and Gorgeous Grunge (Stampin' Up!); Inks:  Tuxedo Black (Memento), Wisteria Wonder (Stampin' Up!); Card Stock:  Baja Breeze - retired, Whisper White, Crumb Cake and Wisteria Wonder (Stampin' Up!); Accessories & Tools:  Banner Punch, Petite Petals Punch, Itty Bitty Punch Pack Flower, 1/8" Silver Mini Brads and Stampin' Dimensionals

HERE is the color palette we had to use for the My Favorite Things Color Palette Challenge #3.

You can find the sketch from the Always Playing with Paper Challenge #3 HERE.

Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,
