Around the World with The Crafting Cafe

Hi Folks
Hope you are having a good weekend.  
I am popping by today to share my inspiration for our current challenge over at The Crafting Cafe.  Our theme for this month is:
Around the World

Our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps and I used one of their super images for my project.

I do have a tendency to keep old boxes for recycling.  This is a Turkish Delight box that I got for christmas.  I coloured the image with my promarkers and matted onto a diecut.  The box was covered with chocolate themed paper from my stash and some chocolate themed ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.  Some flowers, a bow and pearls finished the box.  

Thanks for popping by and don't forget to check out the full challenge details at The Crafting Cafe.  The theme is open to interpretation and looking forward to seeing what you all come up with.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Lacy Sunshine - Monochrome
Not Just Cards - Anything goes
Creative Moments - Anything goes
Sister Act - Anything goes
Catch The Bug - Bingo (Recycle/3D object/sentiment)
Sentimental Sundays - Funny/cute sentiments
613 Avenue Create - Anything goes
