Challenge 8, Week Four

Hello everyone, and welcome to another week on the Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog. We hope that you have been enjoying the current challenge, and if you have not entered yet, you still have a few days left. You can add your projects to the link in this post.

We have received some fabulous entries this month, and we always enjoy reading the blog posts that accompany your entries. We would like to showcase just a few of this month's entries in our post this week.

Our first card comes from Sue, using one of our A Year of Stamping stamps:

Heidi has created her card using some of our new bold flower designs:

Sally's more CAS design uses some simple inking for her background:

Gina has used another one of our A Year of Stamping stamps, to create her very elegant card:

Finally a vibrant scene with lots of layers by Felicie:

Thank you to everyone who has entered this month so far, and we hope to see lots more entries from you before the challenge deadline next week.

We have a free download for you from Lesley this week, it is a really pretty vibrant design, useful for lots of different projects. Please do not pass the image onto others, but send them back here to collect the freebie for themselves.

To obtain your free download, please click on the image below. Once you have enlarged the image on your screen, right click the image, choose the option 'Save As', and save the image to your computer. You can now print the image onto a variety of surfaces for your crafting projects.

The Design Team have been making some projects with the download for your inspiration:

Thank you so much girls, for your fabulous projects.

If you feel inspired to make something with one of Lesley's downloads yourself, why not upload a picture to our Facebook Page? We would love to see what you have made.

We will be back next week with another post and a brand new challenge. Don't forget, if you have any questions, and you can't find the answers on the blog, please send us a private message using the contact form located at the very end of this blog post, you will see it after the comments section.


  1. Thank you lesley for the download - an amazingly vibrant one which ticks all my boxes in colour. The purple triangular flashes look stunning with the glow emanating top right. The 3 samples utilise it so graphically & I particularly like the way the samples move from Shirley's 'cool' & dark ambience to Florence's brighter slightly warmer & culminating in Judith's positively glowing sample.

  2. I love the free download which is so bright and pretty and the three have used the background beautifully. Shirley has found colours that match perfectly for her Doodled flowers, Florence has much more delicate shades of the same colours for her tulips, and Judith also has quite delicate shades for her Fresh Blooms flower but I like that punch of gold for the leaves, flower centre and on the butterfly. x

  3. The new paper is gorgeous, thanks Lesely, and what wonderful cards all round, Kate x


Thank you so much for leaving a comment, we all really appreciate it
