Antique Poinsettia With Chocolate

I had so much fun making these Hershey Nugget chocolate boxes.  I had to find my Cameo again, so much on my desk.  Once I cleaned my desk, I was ready for December's challenge of "Anything but a Card".  I didn't want to go with a tag, but I wanted to make a some fun little containers and found the perfect thing.  I was able to use an 8 1/2" X 11 inch paper to cut the box and box wrap.  Stamping and sponging came to mind and I really like the way this turned out.  The colors just seem to burst from the paper, lots of watercolor effect without the water.  I tried other papers and added some of the leftovers from my homemade background panel.  Just looking at the chocolate here is giving me a chocolate high.
