Challenge 18, Week Four

Hello everyone, and welcome to another week on the Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog. Firstly, we would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year, and that you will have a year filled with exciting crafting possibilities. We hope that we will play a part with providing a bit of inspiration on the blog with our colour swatches, and hope that you will play along with us each month, sharing in the creative fun. If you would like to enter our current challenge, you can add your project to the link in this post.

We have a free download from Lesley for you this week, and she has created a beautiful design for you to use in your projects. She has entitled this design 'Chinese Gooseberries', and it is a rich pattern, suitable for all sorts of themes, as you will hopefully see from the DT inspiration.

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 for your inspiration using the free download. Anne has created a pretty feminine Birthday card, combining several stamp sets:

I have also created a Birthday card, but by adding black details, the overall feel is very different.

We hope that we have inspired you to use this lovely download yourself. If you do make something using one of Lesley's downloads, why not upload a picture to your blog, or our Facebook page? We would love to see what you have made.

We will be back next week with another post, but in the meantime, we look forward to seeing your entries for the challenge. Don't forget, if you have any questions, and you cannot find the answers on the blog, please send us a private message using the contact form located at the very end of this post; you will see it after the comments section.
