Pink October and more Chocolate Baroque



Good morning to you all, it's time for our new challenge at Allsorts and this week Mervi has chosen the theme of 'Pink October'. Our sponsor is Crafty Ribbons.

It's another outing for my Altenew stamps this one is Peony Bouquet stamped onto white linen cardstock with a a mixture of distress and adirondack inks and a sentiment from Visible Image. Matted onto black card and finished, a really quick and easy card.


I also have some shares of some more 15 minutes cards for Chocolate Baroque which you can find over at the DT blog here along with how I made them.





There is lots of inspiration from my teamies at both Allsorts and Chocolate Baroque so I do hope you will pop over and take a look.

I can honestly say that I love all of them Brenda. Each one is so striking in it's own way especially the spotlighted card.

Have a great weekend and I hope the weather is kind to you.

It's impossible choose a favourite, but I just love the sentiment of the first one :D

As always Brenda a wonderful set of cards and some gorgeous images and designs.
Really love the first card although I am not too sure about the sentiment as I do tend to have a vivid imagination and would not be too sure if I would want to do it!
Hope you are well and have a good week.

Hi there, Brenda! Your cards are all so beautiful! My favourites are the first one and the fourth one - the spotlight technique looks so cool! I came off my blog break so I could support The Hop to Stop for domestic violence awareness but also wanted to pop in and see what you've been making! So glad I did!

I'll be back to regular blogging next week! The Cat Lovers Hop starts on the 24th so you know I can't miss it! Have a wonderful day! I hope you've been feeling okay these days!
