July International Highlights Top Ten Winners Blog Hop

Thank you for having a look at today's creation!  Today’s theme: Gratitude inspired by Thailand.
Last month Stampin' Up! took it's incentive trip earners to Thailand, and it look like they had a blast!  I very much hope to earn a trip myself soon, I'm certainly trying!
All the blog hop participants today took part in Kylie Bertucci's International Highlights last month of the same theme and these are the persons who were voted as the top ten. 
My project today is an extension of that last card (CLICK HERE to see it) but I also took inspiration from the beautiful hand carved flower soaps that Thailand is well known for.

I thought the window box framelits made the perfect little box for this project and the coordinating Window Shopping stamp set had the perfect thank you for the inside, to add the little bit of colour to the top I used my blender pens.

How stunning are those berry burst Orchids against that Basic Black box?  Of course the Climbing Orchid Stamp set has the matching Orchid builder framelits available but I decided to fussy cut these ones so I could get in nice and close to that line, I then used my marker to run around the side and remove that white outline.
