Chocolate Baroque challenge July

Hello again.

The second challenge card I have just completed is for Chocolate Baroque.

The colours are a bit out of my comfort zone and my sample has come out a little brighter than I would have liked!

I have only just started doing any challenges and I find that it really helps me to focus on using colours I may not normally use, and actually completing a card. Must be good.

The stamp used for the background is from the Floral Edges set.
I have stamped it all around the edge, to form a frame.

The butterfly and saying are from one of my favourite sets called Patchwork butterfly.
I have used the stamps in this set so often as they are a great size. It also has an oversized butterfly, which is good for home d├ęcor items.
Great used with metal too.

Two cards in one day. Whatever next!

Bye for now. Please visit again.



  1. Gorgeous card Carole. Love the colours and the butterfly is beautiful. Hugs, Carol S.xx

  2. Hi Carole, a really pretty card, great use of the floral edges, and lovely mixing and matching of your stamps. I love the Patchwork Butterfly set too. Thanks for your entry into the Chocolate Baroque challenge, Judith xx

  3. Hi Carole and of course I absolutely love the brightness of the colours :-D! Such a clever design and use of the stamps and great colours too.

  4. Didi I notice some burgundy in there too :-D. See you soon. Xxx

  5. Gorgeous card Carole. I would never have guessed you were a little out of your comfort zone with these colors. Love how you have used them on your project. Thank you for playing along with the Chocolate Baroque Color Challenge.

  6. Indeed a lovely card, very inspirational (must try that too with the flower edges). The chocolate baroque challenges certainly challenges us often! Even combinations that look easy can challenge me as I sometimes "think" to hard about the colours.

  7. This is just beautiful . I've had so much trouble with color . How did you color the background stamping

  8. This is stunning! I love the background-really well put together with the colours and love that butterfly with some sparkle. I love the brightness to it but it doesn't seem too bright more rich

  9. WOW! Beautiful project, Carole! Fabulous use of this month’s colours. Love the sparkle on the butterfly. Thank you for joining Chocolate Baroque’s 13th Colour Challenge.
