Challenge 5, Week Four

Hello everyone, welcome back to the Chocolate Baroque challenge blog. As Christmas approaches, we would like to thank you for your continued support for our blog. For those of you who have entered into the challenge, Thank You so much for finding the time amongst your busy preparations.

This week we are taking a look at some of your entries into the current challenge, and as always, we are really impressed with the artwork that you continue to produce for the challenges. Our first entry is Janny, who has used some of our newest stamps to create an underwater scene on her card:
Our next entrant is Rachel, with her beautiful Christmas card, the background is really lovely:
Kristiina has created some beautiful ATCs combining music paper and floral stamps:
Finally Barbara has made a card using a white embossed butterfly, which is layered simply on a plain background, the butterfly is decoupaged and really stunning:
Thank you to everyone who has entered this month, and we hope to see lots more entries from you before the challenge deadline next week. There is still plenty of time to enter, and you can find the link in this post.
