Free Download at Chocolate Baroque

Good morning folks, I meant to post this yesterday but I forgot lol. Another hectic week at work has scrambled my brains but better late than never I suppose. We've got lots of inspiration for our challenge over at Chocolate Baroque Challenge plus another gorgeous free download from the talented Lesley Wharton! We're also very excited as Lesley is going to be doing regular hows on the Craft Channel!!
This month's free download is a real beauty, Lesley creates such gorgeous papers I always feel its a shame to cover them up so I've stamped a scene over this one so you can still see the pretty paper in the background. I've used stamps from Chocolate Baroque's Landscape Edges and the Design a Tree multi buy for this one. I began by stamping the clouds and background trees with versamark and then applied PanPastels over the top to create a delicate background. Next I stamped the trees and gave them lots of lovely foliage using Memento I'nks. I decoupaged some of the elements from the beautiful freebie paper, distressed everything with Gatherd Twigs distress ink and added a sentiment from Words of Inspiriation to finish off. You can find the free download here.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Crafting from the Heart: Anything goes
Crafty Friends: in the garden
Inspiration Destination: anything goes
Stamping Sensations: Anything goes
Sunday Stamps: creating a scene plus sketch
The Crafty Addicts: Anything goes plus a sentiment
