Leafy Trails from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning folks, my project today features the gorgeous 'Leafy Trails', one of the new Big Bold Background stamps from Chocolate Baroque, you can find them all here (and some special offers too!) 

I've coloured the images with distress markers, and then inked generously with lots of distress ink. I've added a nestie die cut over the top of the hole and then a 'ring of roses' lol and a green seam binding bow. The beautiful roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The edges of the lid were punched with a MS punch. If you pop over to the Chocolate Baroque Design Team Blog, i've posted a template if you'd like to have a go at making one of these covers. If you do make one, please leave me a link to your blog as I'd love to see it :-)

i'm entering this project in the following challenges
Anything but a card: green/ Irish/St Pats
Celebrate the Occasion: spring is in the air
Paper Playtime: anything goes
There she goes: shades of green

Thanks for popping by today

  1. This is very pretty indeed & thank you for the template plus your hints for success. I particularly like your colours & the contrast with the red of the tiny berries against the greens. The floral embellishing around the opening lifts the whole (oops - sorry saw that one as I typed it) beautifully.
