Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge #7 Free Download

Hello everyone,

I have a design today using the free download available at Chocolate Baroque's Colour Challenge blog.

This month's free digital paper is a rustic wood grain design that is great for masculine designs.  The card below was very quick to create.

The background is the free download that can be found here.  We would love it if you could join us in the current challenge.  You could win a gift card to shop at Chocolate Baroque !

I stamped a peacock from Peacock Parade with stamp glue and rubbed Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Flakes - Egyptian Gold over the image.  It's extremely difficult to take a photo with all the glimmer you'll have to take my word for it, the image is very shimmery!  The flakes picked up the colours in the background.  

Thanks for your visit and have a great day,


  1. Such a different colour palette from you, and I love it! That peacock stamp is stunning done in gilding flakes.

  2. Hello Shirley,
