Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge 8 Free Download

Hello everyone,

I have a design today using the gorgeous (and free) download available from Chocolate Baroque's Challenge Blog.   I also used the beautiful set launched last month, Sketchy Doodle Landscape.

This was an easy card to create, it was relaxing to cut out the flowers and leaves.  I printed two pages of the free download that is available here.   I stamped the flowers and leaves onto one sheet, cut out and attached to the second sheet cut for the background.  I highlighted the flowers with a white gelly roll pen and added pearls to the centres.   'With love' is from Macintosh Sentiments.

I was honored to have one of my card designs published in the April 2015 Issue of Craftstamper magazine!  Whew hew!   (page 78 if you have a copy and want to take a peek as I cannot show it on my blog yet :))

Thanks for your visit and a have a great day,


  1. Fabulous colours as always Shirely, your eye for colours is superb. Well done on being published, it does give you a kick.

    Apols for missing some posts, my computer issues have taken far longer to rectify than I could have ever imagined.
