My Project for Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge 21

This is my project for the Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge 21. Love this colour scheme.

This project was also created as one of the samples for the recent TV shows with Dawn Bibby on The Craft Channel using the Haberdashery stamp set. Some great shows and demos from Dawn featuring Chocolate Baroque stamps.

Note: To add more dimension the cut out elements could be shaped and mounted with 3D glue. To keep the card thickness to a minimum for posting I flat glued with PVA in my design.
