Blog Blitz Continues and Memory Box Challenge #47- Flower Power (cards with flowers on them)

Challenge icons

Greetings friends.  Today is a special day because this is the first time we have ever had a new challenge begin during a blog blitz.  What does that mean?  Extra prizes of course!  Leave a comment to this post for your chance to win the new Splendid Rose Frame die.  Enter the March contest for a chance to win several of the new dies.  Because the challenge is starting during the blitz, this month's challenge prize is larger than usual.  We hope you will want to participate!

Thanks to everyone who played along with us for our last challenge. We are always inspired by your pink and red submissions!

The winner of the blog badge is Nancy Littrell from the Scandinancy Creates blog.  We really liked her technique of the faux enamel heart.


The random winner drawn from all the entries was Craftyfield from the Crafty Endeavours blog.

Please contact me at [email protected] to claim your prize.

Want to play along in this month's challenge?  The rules are simple - just create a project following the theme, use at least one Memory Box stamp or die on your project and link your entry to this blog post.  You can make a card, a scrapbook page, a home decor item, etc..  To encourage participants with various levels of stamping experience, one entry will be selected at random to win a prize. Enter as many times as you want, but your name will only be entered once into the random prize drawing.   In addition, the design team will select their favorite entry to  be highlighted on the Outside the Box blog and that designer will receive our winner badge to proudly display on their blog. 

You don't have to have a blog in order to participate.   You can upload your project to any online gallery and link it to this post.   In fairness to other players, we reserve the right to remove entries that do not use at least one Memory Box product.  You are also welcome to link your design to other challenges.  Feel free to grab our badge to post on your blog post or side bar.


Spring is so close and it is that time of year to celebrate flowers.  We would love to see your floral creations to celebrate the changing of the seasons.  All we ask is that you use at least one Memory Box product in your entry and that you have a flower/flowers in your project.

Need some floral inspiration?  Check out the work by these designers:
