Challenge 33, Week Five

Hello everyone, and welcome to the final week of Challenge Thirty-Three on the Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog. Thank you for your lovely comments throughout the month, we really appreciate your visits to the blog, and your continued support.

This week, we are taking a look at some of the entries that we have received for the current challenge, and showcasing them on the blog. We hope that you enjoy the selection that we have chosen to share with you.

The first card comes from Sandra, a very pretty card utilising images from the Wild Meadow stamp set, to create a scene, with added inked mountains and a sun behind:

The second card is a lovely dimensional card created by Shelagh, incorporating a fabulous butterfly and leaves created using watercolour paper:

Celia's journal page is our next entry, showcasing some of our Spring themed stamps. She has created a delicate background and then made a focal panel for the bird image, surrounded by flowers to give more dimension:

Kate has created a very clean and simple style card for one of her entries this month. The simple pastel background is all that is required to complement the floral panel, and the softer tones are still perfect for this colour challenge:

Finally, Janny's quirky card using images from the Steampunk Birds stamp set is perfect for this time of year, when we are thinking of Easter cards. The cockerel reminds me of my own chickens when we kept birds in the garden, he is such a great image:

We have some more inspiration from the Design Team to share with you this week. Vronnie has created a super Easter card using some of our newest stamps:

Marga has created a delightful floral card, adding some texture stamps into the background to create added dimension to her one-layered card:

Zoe has used the beautiful Fritillary stamp for her project, adding a few scattered sequins to the soft background:

Thank you girls for your inspiration as always, and we hope that the designs will inspire you to create something yourselves for the challenge.

We have had some fabulous entries from you this month and hope that you have enjoyed using the colours in the current colour swatch.  Thank you to everyone else who took part in the challenge this month, there is still plenty of time to enter before the deadline next week.
