What's in the Box 2011 - Memory Box

I love the new Memory Box Orchid Branch Print stamp and wanted to showcase the flowers using a blue and brown color combination. I was inspired by some beautiful china that Kathy shared on her blog here.  Love the touch of color in the china and the soft sheen. I decided to try to emulate that with the Orchid Print. I did a version with cracked finish but it didn't turn out the way I wanted. So I might try that again later. :)

Here is what I created using the orchids.


For the next two weeks on Outside the Box you get to see the new What's in The Box Release 2011.  There are also prizes and great inspiration to be found.

The products used on this card are Brioche, French Toast, C1714 Cocoa Bean Butterfly, G1718 Orchid Branch Print, So Sweet, G1732 Hope Collage.

Hope you are having a wonderful week.
