With Sympathy

So, what are you doing while you wait for the total eclipse of the moon?  Me?  Why, I'm making cards and entering challenges and having ever so much fun in my craft studio.  It's now after midnight so I don't have long to wait for the event to begin to unfold.  Fortunately, we have a clear sky tonight.  In the meantime, here is the card I made for two challenges; The Paper Players Color Challenge and the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

Stamp Sets:  Secret Garden, Mixed Bunch, Flower Shop and Teeny Tiny Wishes (Stampin' Up!); Inks:  Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral and Always Artichoke (Stampin' Up!); Card Stock:  Basic White (Darice), Always Artichoke and Etcetera Designer Series Paper (Stampin' Up!); Accessories & Tools:  Stripes Embossing Folder, Secret Garden Framelits, Blossom Punch, Pansy Punch and Pearl Basic Jewels (Stampin' Up!)

The colors I used followed the The Paper Players Color Challenge.


For my card design, I used the sketch from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.


Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,



  1. This is so pretty, Marsha! One of my favorites of yours. :)

  2. A very pretty card, Marsha! I love how you used the strips of designer paper against the textured background. Thanks for playing with The Paper Players!

  3. So pretty Marsha! I love the embossed stripes and the layered flower. Fabulous way to showcase the colors. Thanks so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players. :)
