A Sympathetic Eleanor — PP131

It’s time for a theme challenge at the Paper Players this week.

They aren’t my favorite card to make (and definitely not to send), but it’s always great to have sympathy cards on hand because we all need to send them from time to time.  So join us in this challenge and make a sympathy card for your stash.

Sympathetic Eleanor -- PP131

I pulled out a stamp set that I haven’t been giving enough love, Everything Eleanor.  I think this set is so pretty and I really should use it more.  I colored the flower with my markers and a blender pen.

I hope you can find some time to join us in this challenge at the Paper Players.    Check out what the other designers created here:

  4. I agree with Sandy….beautiful without being too fussy, just a perfect sympathy card. Love your color combination and the layout is perfect for the gorgeous flourish stamp. Great job with the challenge!

  5. Amy, this has been one of those sets that I just struggle to come up with ideas for. But then I saw your card and BAM, instant inspiration. Wow! I love the colors and your beautiful layout. Pure gorgeousness!
