Our Creative Corner Inspiration Challenge

Our Creative Corner has an inspiration challenge this week, and I rarely do those kinds of challenges but thought I would give it a try.  But I really did not feel like making a card, so I decided to decorate a box!

The challenge was to be inspired by two elements in the picture, and to also incorporate a baby theme.  I was going through some boxes and found this box that would make a great baby gift container. I do apologize the picture is not the greatest!

I was inspired by the colors and flowers in the picture, so I used Pool Party and Calypso Coral, paired with the Everyday Enchantment DSP from Sale a Bration.

Here is a close up!  I also used the ala carte stamp, Bringing Baby, stamped on watercolor paper and colored with my ink pads and aquapainter,  I made a few of those little rosebud thingys, and added some ribbon and a brad.  I was somewhat inspired in the design by the Christmas Keepsake Box that Stampin Up offered back in December.

Love the colors!

stamps:  Bringing Baby, Petite Pairs
cardstock:  Calypso Coral, Everyday Enchantment
accessories:  Incolor brads, Pool Party ruffled ribbon, Scallop edge punch
