Creative Embellishments challenge with Graphic 45 French Country!

Creative Embellishments' August challenge inspiration photo made me think of blooming sunflowers and their rich colors.  Here's the inspiration photo provided by Creative Embellishments and a link to the challenge .

I collect chickens and roosters and I love sunflowers, what could be more perfect for this challenge than Graphic 45's French Country collection?  I made a gift box by altering a plastic lettuce box. The twist for this month's challenge was to use a song title as a title on my project.  Thank you Alice in Chains for recording a song titled Rooster, it's a perfect for my project!  I've also added a subtitle, Le Coq which is the rooster in French.  I used Creative Embellishments' icicle border  as grass by turning it upside down and painting it green with Silks.

These lettuce boxes make great gift boxes don't you think?  

I must confess, I am hooked on making these boxes and I've a tutorial for making a similar box here along with some other examples.

Thanks for stopping by!
